i have a few nice big burrs which i want to turn but to get the most out of them i would like to save the cores if possible. Does anyone in northern ireland / ireland have a bowl ssaver which they would be willing to lend or do the coring themselves in return for some pieces of the burr.

If you get no response, and don't want to buy one you could try using a parting chisel (carfully) to remove some of the core. Not as good as the bowl saver, but much cheaper.

HTH,

Not sure if it would work but I've often wondered if I could bend a curve into a "old" parting tool and try it.
Problem is I only have two parting tools and like them both as they are. :)
Just a thought :?

It's like a curved cutter, pivoting in the tool post that enables you to cut out the insides of bowls as a solid core in one go, leaving you with the wood to make a second, smaller, bowl - you can make 4 nesting bowls from 1 blank only wasting the wood between the sizes for example
