Learn how a lathe is used to form a piece of sheet metal into a bowl. The piece of metal and a buck (the bowl form) are secured on a lathe. As the lathe spins, the metal is slowly shaped and formed against the buck to create the bowl. Read more about this process in the October 2012 issue of HANDY Magazine.
