I'm an amateur woodturner who designed a hand-held tool for making nested bowls. It was designed for the amateur woodturner and is simple to use, reasonably priced and requires no learning curve. If you're interested in coring bowls, check I've made more than 45 sets of nested bowls with this unit and have had good reports from all users. I'm willing to send one to any skeptical woodturner who is brave enough to give something this new a try.

Hi—I’m a fellow woodturner (“wood-butcher”) who started by making collection plates for my church group. I advanced to segmented bowls and then platters and now into nested bowls I make with a new hand-held tool I designed for this purpose. My techniques are slowly developing, but some of the spaced segmented turnings intrigue me. Sometimes I think that they go so far in the way of art that they are really not very practical for any use other than to look at. But they are beautiful. Woodturning is a very challenging hobby and rewarding one to perform if one doesn’t try to make a living at it! I love making chips fly from wood that is really ugly until you find the beautiful hidden beauty of a twisted burl. I’ve made much furniture for my home in my shop, but nothing compares to the sensuous look of a carefully designed hand-turned bowl. I thank God for wood and our opportunity to add beauty of this area of His creation.
