Default My bowl

This is one of the bowls from Carole's book Wooden Bowls. It is the 8 lobed bowl and I think it came out pretty good. The sides lined up real well and I'm happy with the finish so far. Yesterday or the day before I dropped it and while it was damp with the finish and then it had a lot of dust and dirt on it so had to resand and refinish it. I almost tossed it, but I was able to save the bowl! I'm really happy with the bowl except I don't like how the color in poplar changes. Going to try pine or aspen on a different bowl. I was so happy about getting the angle right and that the side matched up really nice and no too much sanding except for when the bowl fell on the floor while it was still damp with the finish. Here are a couple of pictures of it. Enjoy Fay

That is a very pretty bowl Fay. I have made one of those out of Oak and another out of Walnut. Making bowls is contagious I warn you hehe. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Thank you. I worked on this bowl for a couple of weeks. I do think it turned out great inspite of dropping it and the drill hole mishap. So glad I was able to save it... Fay

Very cool. I like the shapes that can be done with the scroll saw! I made a bowl today but on the lathe. Havent attempted a scroll saw bowl yet. Very cool!

I never thought that you can take a flat piece of wood and make a bowl or a box out of it. It's fun and I remember when I posted about the purpose of the table tilt. I like using it for making things. Not just for attaching the lower clamp on. Thanks for al the nice compliments Fay
