      Mornin' all...
       
      If anybody likes playing with lathes... 
       
      For anybody who may not know this... the Museum of London book "The Medieval Household: Daily Living c. 1150-1450" [Egan - ISBN 0 11 290490 4; pages 196 - 217] has a section on wooden vessels... primarily bowls.  The spiffy part about this is that there are any number of archeological drawings showing the profiles and exterior details of the bowls, info on what they were made from and accurate size info.
       
      Armed with this... if you scan in the drawings and blow them up on your computer (you DO have a computer don't you???  ;-)  you can print out beautiful full sized sheets that can be used get real accurate on turning your bowls.
