  • 1st Scroll Saw Bowl

    This is my first attempt at a scroll saw bowl. I used Carole Rothman’s excellent book and tried my hand at a Basic Bowl. I didn’t want to use “good” wood until I thought I had the basics down so I made this from a piece of scrap pine I had in the garage. The pattern of the grain really popped and made this bowl at least interesting if not attractive. Already working on my next bowl.

    Now that is one lovely bowl. Not only is the grain beautiful, but your finishing of the top edge is about as good as it gets! I’m glad you’re enjoying the bowl book, and look forward to seeing your next project.

            That's one of the really fun things about those bowls. The grain pattern and orientation make for some really interesting and unique effects. The surface of the wood can be very bland, but the end and edge grain will almost always bring something cool to the party.

                Great Job. I invite you do go to scrollmania.com and try out the PolyDraw software. It allows you to design your own bowls. Ther are about seven tutorials to help learn Carol Rothman edited them for me so they under easy to understand!

                  Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                  • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                  Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
