  • 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.

            Old Tool - Reborn
            by tgiro01
            With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

            I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

            I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

            But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

            +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

            It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
