Before we go on I want to show you a couple of other things. This was a piece of wood I was going to turn for you earlier but then after I got to inspecting the wood, I go well there is the figure, there is where it needs to be down on the bottom but I found a crack right here. Make sure you inspect your timber. Make sure it is good and safe wood. Now also I want you to look at this one. This bowl here if I make this the top, this bark will actually turn out of it so this will be alright and I have to take that into consideration as I am turning it and we'll end up turning this one for our final bowl to show you that. But we're going to go ahead on this one and show you how to cut it out on the band saw. Make sure that your fingers are out of the way. I like to always have my fingers so if I slip I go past the blade, not into the blade. So many times I'll even grab it from the back side here in order to keep my fingers from you know having a chance to go into the blade.
