Day 3 and I found a cool app
On Saturday night Jed and I got together for another round of our apprenticeship. For those that don't know, in January we were chosen to work together for the Craft Apprentice Program (CAP).
Saturday began with a little more of the same from the other day. Jed cut up his bowl blank and then roughed it out on the lathe. Jed's time roughing out has improved from last time. He's getting more comfortable with the cuts that I want him to make and how I want him to position the gouges.

During the repetitive times I can shoot pictures and videos of the work in progress. I had shot a few videos and posted them to Instagram. I was messing around in my phone with iMovie, which I have used to create videos before, and saw that I could either create a movie or a trailer. I started playing around with creating a trailer. I was laughing at the answers that I was putting into the trailer information and, unfortunately, Jed thought I was laughing at something that he was doing. I had to show him what I was doing and you can also see what I created below.
I'm sure Jed thinks that I've lost my mind but it was fun to shoot and then put into the trailer.
After roughing out the salad bowl blank we turned it around and used my Oneway coring system. The Oneway coring system is a series of supported curved cutters that allow us to take smaller bowls from the center of the largest bowl. By doing this we are maximizing what we can get out of each log because we are not turning all of the wood in the center of the biggest bowl into shavings on the shop floor. On Saturday we were able to get three cores (bowl blanks) out of the center of our bowl.
