  • Bowls

    I have had Carols book now for about 1 1/2 years and finally tried some of the basic bowls. These are fun and so easy to do with Carols instructions. I will try for some of the more "fancy" ones later on. I used wrc on two and aromatic cedar on the other two.
    Any comments are welcome.

          Well done on these bowls Fran. They look super. The wood tones really sing.

            Now aren't you sorry you waited so long?

            They look great, Fran, and no one would guess they were your first. And I think the more you get into bowls, especially the "fancy stuff", the more fun you'll have.

            Way to go! Congratulations on a great start.

              Thanks everyone for the compliments.

              Carol, I have wanted to jump in and make these since getting the book, but "life happens" I was so busy with other things at the time, I put it off for awhile. Then last year (April 2011) I found out I was highly allergic to yellowheart after breathing a bit of the dust and just in the last 3 months been able to really do anything in the shop.

                    Very nice Fran. I have made a few of those bowls from Redwood...I am very allergic to Cedar...the end results were about the same look.

                      Very very nice. I've never been able to make a bowl come out right.
                      It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

                      It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.

                          Western Flier, What kind of problems have you had? Carol and the other people here will surely help you. He,he,he, I trashed 3 before I got my angle just right. But I had made them from pine, so no great loss.

                            I think my problem is I can't get the angle right. With my Porter Cable saw the table will tilt but it is had to adjust unless you want a 15 30 or 45 degree angle.

                              Western Flyer, if you use some sort of external angle guide, like a Wixey or a homemade device (Rolf has one, I believe), you may be able to solve your problem. And if you're stuck with 30˚, let me know and I'll help you figure out something to get you started.

                                Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                                We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                                He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
