  • Dalmation Wood Bowl

    Made this bowl from a piece of wood I got from my local Woodcrafters called Dalmation. It is very very dense hard to cut and sand but will polish very nicely. I used homemade mineral oil/bees wax paste to finish this bowl.

    I LIKE it! That is some wonderful graining in the wood -- although I must say I was expecting polka dots. Great job on the bowl!

      DW -- Beautiful wood and it makes a stunning bowl. Did you rotate the rings?

        Jim I did rotate them a little just enough so that the glue joints did not line up. I glued two 3 1/2 inch wide pieces together to make the blank so I did not want a glue line showing if possible.

                      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...
