Smile Small Cherry Bowl

Hello! I am excited to have completed my first little bowl! I would like to thank everyone for all of the good advice I have been reading on this forum. It opened my eyes to so many tips and ideas. Angles were my enemy on the first 2 attempts at bowl making on a scroll saw. This little cherry bowl stands only 2" tall but has me wanting to try more! Its finished with mineral oil only at this point. Thanks for looking! Tammy

Very Nicely done Tammy. Cherry can be a difficult wood to work because it can burn easily. Thanks for sharing it with us. Now that you are hooked looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Nice job, Tammy, and cherry is definitely a tough wood to work with. Hope this is the first of many.

And if you have any problems computing angles, etc., you know where to come for help.

I also had trouble with angles, so I did a bit of research and made myself this using a free to use and copy tan table

So all I have to do now is remember where I put the print out

Tammy, Dave, and anyone else new to bowl-making, to make it even easier, go to Dave Van Ess' site, scrollmania.com, and use his angle calculator.

In addition to rounding up to the larger angle, if you are using a 1/4" thick ring, which gives less leeway for cutting errors, you can add on an extra degree to your cutting angle. Excess wood on the outside of your bowl can easily be sanded away, but if your ring comes out too narrow, you may not have enough wood for gluing up.

You might find it helpful to check out the bowl-making videos that can be accessed on this site from the side bar, and from my blog.

Looking forward to seeing more nice bowls!
