  • 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.

                  In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                  Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                  The outside
                  of the extension is almost finished apart...

                  Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
