Bowl Progress

I've just fitted the second of the two wide ribs that complete the bowl. These were much trickier than the narrow ones and even when bent as accurately as possible they seemed to twist out of shape when gluing them up - I think the the mould is at fault here and that the next mould needs to have this section at exactly right angles to the top. I will also add a removable section to the mould to give something to push against when fitting these last two ribs.

Luckily, I managed to get the untidy part of the joint to be at the front of the bowl where it will be covered by the end cap (which I'm going to fit next).
