  • My first wobble bowl

    My first wobble bowl. Pattern from

    This was fun, easy to cut, and didn't take much wood. Used 1/4" walnut... which btw... gave me a strange allergic reaction of a tingling tongue. Go figure. Haven't had an issue with any dust until the walnut.

    Very nice bowl. I think you should start wearing a dust mask. We have had some of our members that have ended up in the hospital by different wood's dust. Myself included. Found out the hard way I was allergic to yellow heart dust.

      Nice job. Like Fran has suggested wear a dust mask. Should anyway when cutting. Nothing worse than having breathing issues because of something you can prevent. Thanks for sharing the bowl with us.

      Life is hard. It is even harder when you are being stupid.

        You did a beautiful cutting job on this bowl. It looks really nice. I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you soften the upper and lower edges of the outer rim if you haven't already. Sandpaper with a sanding block would work well for this purpose.

          Thanks Mike I will definitely do that. I really appreciate the tip.

          I wore a dust mask at first... but then I wasn't having any probems at all and so I stopped. I have a box fan that blows across my scroll saw table and then an air clean on the other side... but I will definitely start wearing a mask. I have noticed I was doing more coughing lately as my system was trying to get rid of the dust.

          I don't have any allergies that I am aware of except something to do with mold on leaves that really bothers me.

            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

            I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

            I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

            To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

            I checked out We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
