    I have a friend who does beautiful open work on bowls like those you've shown in the photos. He uses dental tools.

    Barbara: That burl platter was beautiful, one of my favorite's. It deserves to be shown on multiple forums, even the design and decorating ones. Sorry you missed the gatherings...an incredibly friendly group.

    PS. In my mind, I awarded your husband a ribbon!

I am sorry I missed both scrolling evening events. We have a standing gathering both night that we attend while in Saratoga. It is a gathering at the Parting Glass of members of our club in Syracuse that attend the show and stay overnight one or both nights. On Saturday we even were entertained by a 25 piece pipe band that was holding a fund raiser for their trip to an international competition in Scotland (our ears are still recovering!).

    Although it's not in the same league, the Roehl and Spielman book shows open work on some of the bowls. I tried it--and it's a bear to get it right.

    However, if the walls of a scrolled bowl are thin enough, there's no reason why incising cannot be done. You do need a uniform thickness because once you make cuts, irregularities are noticeable. Certainly worth looking into.

    I started a new thread in the bowls forum that kinda shows how this can be done.

    Norman and Paul: The work that was done on the "fretwork" on those bowls was absolutely beautiful. I was also intrigued by the technique. It was not done with a scroll saw. In the vendor section, they were demonstrating and selling the tools used to do this. Unfortunately, I do not remember the name of this tool but I believe it was made by Porter Cable. They used a device to hold the bowl accurately and cut into the bowl very precisely with this cutter that looked somewhat like a Dremel rotary tool. It had a sharp cutter that looked something like a short drill bit. It was impressive in how crisp and sharp the cuttings were. It was also used to make those parallel grooves at the tops of some of those vases and the radiating cuts on the plates. If someone can fill in the names of this equipment, please do so. The vendors at this show present such an incredible variety of new gadgets, sometimes two days is just not enough time to see everything, especially all the demonstrations.

    Just love to see pics like that. Cannot possibly be there in person and it is sooo verrry nice of you to share the pics so we can imagine.
    How are the fretwork bowls created? They are intriguing.

    Saratoga Project Pics

    Here's a few projects I found interesting. A lot of really great and inspiring pieces. Two of my favorites were the celtic bowl and the dress. I really liked how movement was captured in the piece.

    Thanks, Scott. You just saved me a lot of work. However, I did want to make sure that everyone saw these two, by Carole and JackM.

    Dirty & cluttered have been co-mingling in my shop for so long, I can't tell the difference. 😁...

    Four partially drilled holes in a block of maybe oak?
    Got to remember, I am pretty simplistic.

    Thanks for the advice Linda, I may have to do that. The future bride and groom are avid golfers so I would like to do something special for them. Also I am Godfather to the bride and I'm very humbled that she asked me to do this for her.

    Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

    Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...
