Default Bowl , box and a tray

I still have work to do on these but I couldn't wait to post the pictures. The shuttle box I decided I may not put a handle on it and the bowl and tray need to have more work done, but the bowl has a few hair line cracks on the sides and the bottom so will not over do this one. At least I have some thing to look back on. I don't know how the hairline cracks got there but they may have already been in the wood before I cut it. I didn't inspect the wood very well and it was a scrap piece I cut. The tray was one I cut out and the sides did not match up so I made it into a tray for putting small Dremel bits in. Now I know I can cut out a bowl. Will order more wood after the holidays and try again to get a nice bowl done. Thanks for looking,,, Fay

Nice assortment of projects--they all look really nice. Can't wait to see how you progress--I predict we'll be seeing a lot of good stuff coming out of your shop.

Thanks Carole, The angle thing is what's getting my goat, but will continue to work on it. I may purchase an angle guage to put on the scroll saw so I will not have to look under the table. I can't see the numbers on that little thing. But then again Steve Good has a free angle guage on his site that I can make and that should also help. Not to mention my cutting will need work too. Well gotta go fix some supper, Mom is hungry and Sis is tired so I told her I would cook and take care of the dogs. Butter is outside barking so I best get the dogs feed before I fix supper. Scooter doesn't bark so not sure if that's a blessing or not...Have a great evening Fay

There's an angle guide on here somewhere that I printed and glued to a piece of wood. I use this all the time to check my angles and make sure my blade is straight. I know Rolf knows where it is, as he uses it too. I also found that when you drill holes, tilt your drill press to the same angle to drill. You wouldn't believe how long it took me to discover this. It was one of those "Duh" moments.

Betty I don't have a full size drill press but do have the workstation for my Dremel tool. It doesn't drill at angles, but I did what Carole did , I used a scrap piece of wood that was drilled at the angle it called for and then put that against the drill bit to start the hole and then took the scrap angled piece of wood away and then finished drilling. I used my flex shaft tool to do that as my drill konked out. I found that to drill a better hole as I was able to get ahold of it better. It was so funny, I made some taco bowls last night for supper and I thought right away of Carole's petal bowl, the one that is in her book Wooden bowls. I'll have to give that bowl a try one of these days, but will work on the basic bowls first and practice more on the angles and the sanding and all that stuff. One day I will come out with a nice bowl. I can't believe that Mom said this bowl is so pretty. Have a great day and thank you all for the nice compliments. Fay

I did eventually buy an angle guide that has a magnet on the bottom and I love it. I think I paid about $10 bucks for it and all I have to do is put the marker thing on the angle I need and then set it on the saw table and then tilt it until that mark hits the angle and I don't even have to look under the table any more. Now to work on another bowl project. I have a box and a nautilus shell to finish first, so will work on those for a spell before cutting out another bowl. Have a great day Fay
