This milling process is a necessary step before gluing the bowl body to a wood faceplate. The objective is to get the top and bottom of the bowl body parallel to each other. You will need a drill press, a Wagner Safe-T-Planer (similar to a fly cutter used by machinist), and preferably a foot operated on-off switch so that your hands are free to hold the bowl body. I make light cuts (about 1/16″) in doing this process. Start by milling the bottom of the bowl.
