  • bowls 2 and 3

    Well this week I finished 2 more bowls. The first is poplar and the second is pine. Bigger than my last little cherry bowl. Still seemed to take a load of sanding and the insides leave a little to be desired (I tried routing out the bottoms with my new toy) but I like how they turned out. Both finished with mineral oil.

    Thanks for looking!

    Looking good, Tammy. The grain is really nice.

    If you want to read about using the router to get a rounded bottom, try to get a copy of Spielman and Roehl's book about making bowls with a scroll saw and router. It's long out of print, but describes a process to make some really impressive stuff.

          You got he grain on the pine bowl spot on! I had to look real close to see the edges of the rings. Both bowls look great.

            Great job Tammy. I like the grain structures on both of them. Thanks for sharing them with us.

              Those turned out great! Nice job.

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

                  At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                  The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                  Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
