  • Two scrolled bowls finished on the lathe

    Here are two new 10 inch diameter bowls made from maple. Cut out the rings, glued them together, and finished them on the lathe. Second bowl, I made up two bowls the exact size, and swapped the rings around.

    Finish is USP grade mineral oil and beeswax.

    If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

            Very nice SQ....I have been reading of others that are doing the sanding on the lathe. Not having a lathe around, I will have to stick to the original way.

                Carole, thanks for the very kind words. I love making these scrolled bowls, and it's all your fault.

                  Thanks everyone for all the nice comments.

                  Larry, I first smooth the bowl out with the different turning tools and then once it's as smooth as I can get it, I sand it while still on the lathe. Nothing wrong with sanding the original way. It works equally well.

                    Do you find it takes less time to round out the bowls using the lathe? Once again another reason I should have held onto the lathe I had..

                      It has saved me lots of time. I am still scrolling the bowls like I learned from Carole's book and gluing up the rings. I start on the outside of the bowl and clean up the layers then move into the interior of the bowl and do the same thing with the different turning tools. The basic shape is there, I'm just taking off all the rough edges. Then I sand it with a Grex 2 inch air sander. The resulting symmetry is what I was after and I'm very pleased with the results.

                      But don't jump into a lathe without instruction. How you hold the turning tools and where you place them on a turning vessel are rules one must follow to turn anything safely.

                        Very nice bowls Sussie.When you ,first, tell me about finishing on the lathe I was thinking at some considerable change on outside shape of the bowls .I think so this is possible if the rings are thicker in diameter.Why not ? some flower vases could be done this way ,with some PVC pipe ,or jarr,or cutted bottle inlay for water proofing.

                            The bowels look extremely well done. I like them !

                            For a 10" bowl are you using 10" wide boards for the largest ring ? Or are you edge gluing narrow boards to get the 10" width ?

                              Epson,

                              Thank you! It is so good to hear form you! Hope the family is doing well. Outside edge could be shaped in many different ways and I agree thicker rings would help make that possible.

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
