Default 7-wave open segmented bowl

Haven't posted for a while, due to stuff related to the upcoming box book, but decided to get back to pushing the envelope on what can be done with scroll saw bowls.

This was supposed to be a more elaborate 2-blank project, but an attempt to undo a misaligned glue-up (resulting in some very expensive designer firewood) left me with one good blank. The openings destroy round inflatable sanding sleeves, and make it a 50/50 proposition that the project will get flung across the shop. I was able to reinforce the inside of the coarse sleeve with blue tape, but the other sleeves have openings even when new, and taping didn't help at all. The 7-wave shape (thanks, Dave!) also added to the problem, but I was determined not to lose all that time and costly wood.

So I did what I could, then finished up by hand. The main wood is maple, with 1/4" bloodwood and cherry veneer. Hope you like it--I think it was (almost) worth all the work, aggravation, and ruined sanding sleeves.

It looks great, much more than I'm ready to tackle.
It may make you feel better if you turn the air blue with a few well chosen words when these things happen. LOL It works for me.

Just beautiful, Carole - wow, your choice of wood and the unique design turned out fantastic!

I'm going to have to google "sanding sleeve" tho, as I can't figure out what those would be attached to and how they would work. Ahhh, always something more to learn!

Love it! Looks like a "real" basket, only prettier.

Patte, it's part of King Arthur's Tools Guinevere system. The sleeve fits over a round inflatable ball that is pumped up with a small hand pump. There are also several different types of drums. I use a drill press to hold the sander, but it will also fit on a flex shaft or directly on a motor. It is invaluable for sanding the inside of curved surfaces, since it does not gouge on the bottom edge. It is pricey, but short of making your own, it's the only tool that does the job.

That's beautiful Carole. You certainly are pushing the envelope with this one. It looks like it was woven by hand. It definitely was worth the effort.

Thanks, everyone, for the nice comments. What's neat is that nobody believes that it is constructed from a single blank, in the same manner, as any other bowl. And, even people who do open segmentation with the lathe would have a hard time handling the 7-wave shape.

I'm going to start experimenting with some other glue-ups and lamination patterns. Dave's program makes it easy to customize the size and shape--much better than the compass, French curves, and cookie cutters that I used to use, and the SandFlee can be used as a jointer to get good edges for gluing up. Progress!
