  • Cutting Segmented Bowls

    Can anyone suggest a quick and easy method for calculating the angle a segmented bowl's rings should be cut at? I know it varies based on the thickness of the wood and the thickness of the rings but that's as far as I can get. The last time I studied math LBJ was President.

    Thanks

    Dusty there is David's website and he has a quick and accurate calculator .. you just plug in the thickness of the wood and the thickness of the ring and click on the button and it gives you the angle.
    Here is the link to it.

          Jean-Jacques,
          Your English is fine and your link is correct... even though Dusty Hawk used "segmented bowls" in the title, the question is actually asking about the "bowl from a board" method used for scroll sawn bowls... and that is why the link to AngleCalc met his needs.

              Excuse me for what. You gave a good answer to the question and helped others on their projects....

                Yes, Jean-Jacques, you answered the question that was asked... so nothing to be sorry about. (I was just explaining why the AngleCalc! link was what Dusty Hawk was looking for... he used the term 'segmented bowl' but that is inaccurate. As you know, wood turners make segmented bowls... )

                  Thank's. I also do wood turning and I thought turning segmented.

                    I like the term "stacked ring bowls" since it differentiates it from segmented bowls. Keeps it simple!

                      If you call them stratified Vessels you can get an extra five bucks at the craft show.

                        I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

                        Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!

                        Linda,
                        Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                        Thanks for posting Carole, Depending on what other time consuming distractions I have I might just have to do a wavy bowl.
                        Also for reminding me that I have your books on my shelf for inspiration!!
