Glenn enters his workshop and cuts up the slice of wood with a bandsaw, making it circular. He then carries it to his woodturning machine called a lathe. He fixes it to the lathe then sharpens his tools on a special grinder. The tools are called bogouges and as the lathe spins the wood he begins to shape it. He takes out the centre with a ‘corer’ and soon it begins to look like a very rough bowl. Because the wood is fresh and wet he takes it to a drying room where he leaves it for 8 weeks to dry.
