  • 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.

      Congratulations, and nice work getting the grain aligned.

          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.

                  $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.

                  After cleaning the wheel and going through the drawers he found all the attachments/tools that came with the grinder. He priced everything and it was $500 plus. A member was selling the tools tor the wife of a member whose husband died last year. You think SLRA is picky with measuring, you should see...

                  Yes, there is a market for the original. I think there are a couple other FL scrollers on this site. There are also a few on the Scrollsaw Village site. I would try scroll saw sites before I attempt Facebook Market Place or Craigslist....
