  • My first Carole Rothman bowl... well jar

    I finally got Carole Rothman's ginger jar done today! Made from Alder with a shellac finish. I don't have the base finished, but I wanted to post the jar. A big THANK YOU to Carole for all the extra help with this!! I have been emailing and messaging with her for a couple weeks over the jar.


    (The penny is in the picture for my dad. It gives him an idea of what the size is)


    This is what Carole was helping me with:


    It wasn't very pretty!!! Everything was going good with it until I started trying to shape up to the lip. Carole was soooo patient with me and gave me such good advice!! It's hard to believe I got it too look as decent as it does!!! Thanks for looking!!

                    Great Save Cathy....When those darn things get out of round it's a pain to find the fix isn't it. I'd say you did a darn good job.

                      It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                      I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                      This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                      If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                      I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
