Calabash Bowl

By Emiliano Achaval

Emiliano Achaval will be demonstrating how he turns his calabash bowl.

Emiliano lives in Hawaii and is a moderator on the AAW website.

His demo includes turning a calabash bowl and showing how he installs bowties in the bowl to keep a crack from spreading.

This will be very interesting and educational.
