Default Finally finished a project!

Just finished up Carole's footed candy dish.

I'm happy with the first attempt. The outside scallops are larger than the inside ones, but I was afraid I'd screw up the inside if I sanded too aggressively.

I also couldn't resist posting a picture of the drill hole from one of the rings. Usually, I end up with a majority of the hole on one piece, or most of the hole on the top of one piece and most the hole on the bottom of the other. This is the first time I actually got the angle of the hole and the angle of the saw perfectly matched at the same time I was able to cut right through the center of the hole.

You did a great job on this candy dish. I wish I could get all the angles right. I think I need a longer drill bit and one tiny enough so that drill hole will go away once it is sanded. I made a bowl one time and the angle either wasn't quite right or I didn't drill it straight or some thing. Any way, I filled it with a wood filler and it turned out pretty nice. I got done cutting a box this morning and there were a couple of voids in the ply wood I used and filled those with wood filler and those don't even show. Tomorrow I will finish with the glue ups and then it will be done except for t he final finish. Will probably be able to post a picture in a day or two. Take care and that dish is so pretty. At least you have got the laminating mastered it looks like.
Have a great day, Fay.

That sure looks great, Rob. Who am I to give a suggestion as I am on my first bowl, but I found a way to drill at the correct angle. Cut the outside of the first ring and the waste is the correct angle. I have a drill press that I adjusted the angle using the waste as a guide.

The method I'm trying right now is to set the scroll saw angle, and then cut a scrap block to exactly match what the blade is. However, I'm free-hand drilling as opposed to using a drill press.
