Default First Effort with Bowls

Actually I made Carole Rothman's basic bowl out of junk wood before these. For the two pictured I used the shape of Carole's Center Lamination Bowl. As is my practice, I use what I have on hand, in this case, oak and Brazilian cherry. I had forgotten how hard the cherry is to sand and I spent much more time sanding than any other step. These two bowls were a real lesson on what you must do if your sanding angle is a little off and you get a little off line in cutting. I finished the bowl with what I have on hand, General Finishes Polyacrylic (satin).

I can's say enough about Carole's book "Wooden Bowls from the Scroll Saw". Her instructions are clear and complete, a real plus for me.

Very nice looking pair of bowls. Yea Brazilian Cherry is a difficult wood ( hard ) to work by hand. It does finish well though. Now that you have the concept down you can experiment a bit with shapes, angles and the like. If you show your bowl and they are all round folks will think that you did them on a lathe so I tend to vary the shape of the ones I make and the wood I use. Might want to make a glue up of scrap pieces different colors etc and then smooth it out and then cut an interesting bowl from it. I did one one time from a box of pen plank rejects and it looked great when done. Keep up the great job. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Very nice. Isn't it cool to watch the bowl come alive from a flat piece of wood?

Really nice job with the bowls. Look like you've been making them for years.

Brenda, if you check out the Fox Chapel videos, you'll find one I made that covers all the steps involved in making a bowl. The new supplement (Boxes, Baskets and Bowls, or something like that) has a basic bowl with full SBS instructions.

And it really is amazing to watch a flat piece of wood bcome 3D.

I'm posting this from my local library--no power at home due to Sandy, but I wanted to be sure of offer my congratulations on a well-done job on the bowls.
