  • 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.

                                My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                                Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
