Laguna Revo 1524 Deep Dive ExaminationThe Laguna Revo 15|24 is a new lathe with a 1.5 HP motor, capable of turning a 15" bowl or a 25" spindle. The Revo 15|24 is a full size economy lathe that weighs in at 288 pounds without any accessories. That is a good weight for bowl turning, as it can keep things stabilized as you are turning a bowl blank that isn't completely round yet.

Woodturning: How to turn a resin and wood bowlGeorge Vondriska (https://www.instagram.com/vondriskaworks/) provided me with this great resin and wood blank that he designed to look like a patchwork quilt. You'll see his techniques for creating the resin blank, adding colorant to the resin, pouring into molds and curing in a casting epoxy pressure pot, removing the resin blank from the molds, etc. From there, I turn the resin bowl in my shop using a negative rake scraper from Easy Wood Tools. Then I coated the resin bowl with Minwax Wipe-on poly.
