I need to drill a hole in a bowl I’m turning (making a yarn bowl). I’m looking to see if anyone has any “tricks” for doing this. I was planning on turning the bowl and then making a curved backer block on the bandsaw to prevent tearout on the inside of the bowl. I don’t want to drill the hole before turning the bowl because I’m concerned about a catch when the bowl gouge goes over the hole.
Any advice is appreciated.
