A different way to turn bowls without having to drill holes in your wood is to use cloth backed double faced tape to adhere the bowl blank to the faceplate of your lathe. This works great if your bowl blank is balanced and true, the tape will hold during the turning and finishing process. You can turn bowls up to 10 inches in diameter and 2 inches thick. For best results, always make sure that your work surface areas are clean and free of dust and debris before placing tape on the bowl blank. After you attach the blank to the faceplate you may want to clamp it as well for an extra secure bond. Always remember to tug or push on the bowl blank once it is installed on to the lathe to make sure you have a secure bond before turning. Once completed with your turning project, use a wood chisel to remove the bowl from the faceplate. Caution: make sure the bowl blank is dry, do not use the tape on wet wood. Each tape dispenses 108 feet of double stick tape.
