Rod developed two items as bowl turning aids. The first is a tool rest with a cutout that follows the contour of the bowl. The PVC Plastic fitting is a height adjustment to allow movement of the rest without changing height.
The second item is a gauge that allows scribing the inside of a rough turned bowl with contour lines. The bowl is turned down until the contour lines disappear yielding a bowl of uniform predetermined thickness.
Rod also provided on his CA glue finish, see here. The Guild thanked Rod for providing detailed information on his innovative finish.
