Default A 4 petal bowl

This one of Carole's patterns in her book on wooden bowls. It was easy to cut but I tried the idea that Dave had on drill the angle with his jig, but it did not work for me at all. So went back to the regular method and the rings lined up really well and not too much sanding. This bowl turned out nice tho I had some problems with the glue spill out. I can't see them once I think they are gone but put on the finish and then I can see them. Grrrr.. Anyway I have this bowl fixed and it looks great. Enjoy,,, Fay

Nice job on the bowl, Fay.

I find that if you apply mineral spirits to the bowl before you finish it, most of the glue spots will show up. Mark them with a white pencil before they disappear, then sand them away. Also, a sealer coat of shellac will also show up any glue spots, and you still can sand them away.

Nicely done Fay. Tung Oil works as well to find the glue spots. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thank you both for the tips and I will give that a try next time I cut out any thing that has to be glued up. The bowl did turn out nice but those pesky glue spill outs are a bleep...I don't know weather to give this one to my sister in law or the oval one that I made. Maybe she'll get both. Thanks again. Fay

That one came out nice Fay, the knots give it a cool look. Keep up the sweeeeet work, and thanks for posting pictures. Another tip with glue squeeze out, run a straw along the glue line to get the bulk of excess glue off before wiping off. Keep cutting the straw end filled with glue, so you will have a fresh open end to catch more glue.

Thanks every one. I took the bowl down to the shop and worked with it some more and what an improvement! I can now give it to my sister in law. Wait until my lathe comes,, it'll be interesting to try turning a bowl. But that won't happen for quite a while yet. I'd like to thank Carole especially for these wonderful patterns books and instructions. She put a lot of hard work in her books and videos and every thing she does... So a big thank you Carole!!!! Fay

Nicely done Fay! Aren't those bowls fun? Lotta sanding, but fun.

I picked up Carole's bowl book a few weeks ago. I've made 3 so far and there are several more on my list. People love these things. They can't get over how they were made with a scrollsaw.

Keep up the good work.
