  • Fruit Bowl

    Took the standard wobble bowl pattern (from Steve Goods site) and blew it up to roughly 12 inches in diameter to create this fruit bowl for my wife. Cut from scrap wood, finished in tung oil and 3 coats of clear poly.

    Very nicely done Bob. That was a great use of a piece of scrap. Thanks for sharing this with us.

      Quite nice -- and big enough to hold some fruit. I don't consider any 12"X12" piece of wood "scrap" -- as it is an uncut project.

        Thanks DW...
        Jim, I have to agree with you about a 12 x 12 piece of wood being called 'scrap' LOL! This piece was an odd cut end piece off of a laminated board used for a table top - hence the term used. I don't think that I really look at any piece of wood as 'scrap'! Check out my wime basket from a 'chunk' of cabinet ply.

            Excalibur 21 repair #2
            by Rolf
            I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
            I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

            I used...

            If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

            After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
            I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

            Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

            Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
