Hi, I’ve seen a few members are interested in the bowl from a board build process. I will share the steps I used to make a dove tail segmented bowl from a board. The only tragedy I encountered on my build was on the lathe when it blew apart after a catch. So I have no bowl but the process to build one is good none the less.
This is my objective.
Start with two pieces of wood, here I’m using cherry and blood wood. I think these were 6×12 by 3/4 inch pieces.
Dove tails are cut and fit.
Now the halves are glued together and cut in half again and dove tails are cut again and two halves then go onto the band saw. I dry fit the two halves together and mark my cuts for the band saw. I used 45deg cuts. I now have two half circles and glue them together to form rings. Stack the rings together to make a bowl. From here add attach to lathe and turn.
This is as far as I got, on the lathe I had a major catch and things went south from that point and the bowl was abandoned.
