Thought it was time I got back to playing around with bowls, while I wait for the next round of edits on the box book (August!).
I also wanted to show people who are new to making bowls how really rough and unattractive the rings can look before they are sanded, since some people expect that the rings will line up perfectly when they are cut. Not quite!
So, here are pictures of the beginnings of this project. The laminated blank, made of ipe, yellowheart, and padauk, is based loosely on one used to make an exquisite turned bowl, pictured in a high-end lathe book. All cutting was done with the scroll saw, using the SandFlee to joint the edges.
The first ring was a wide one, cut at two different angles. It will form a flare when it is sanded. The overhang will completely disappear at that point. I also included pictures that show how to figure out where the swags will meet once they are sanded. I am gluing up the rings one at a time, since there are so many points of alignment. One more to go, then I'll give them an overnight dry and start sanding tomorrow.
At this point, I think I've got things properly aligned, but you never know until you sand. I think this should look really nice, but I won't know for sure until after the rough sanding.
Stay tuned for the next installment.

I meant to reply late last night....this is encouraging as I have a stack of several bowls on the work bench in transition to scrap pile....was thinking that mine looked like they had been cut by a brain-damaged chimpanzee as the rings didn't line up and might take a thousand years to sand the bowls all even...perhaps there is hope!
thanks for the post,
