I took a 12”x12” piece of OSB plywood (oriented strand board) and turned it into a fruit bowl. I used a technique I had seen before but had never tried. The technique allows me to utilize 98% of the wood with absolute minimum amount of waste. The finished bowl has the appearance of being made of cork. Finished bowl is 12” in diameter and 5” deep.
It turned out way better than I expected from this type of plywood. I half expected it to shatter and explode in a million sharp splinters. I give credit to Mr. Sturgis, my 7th and 8th shop teacher as well as Mr. Rich, my 9th and 12th grade shop teacher. They taught me the love of creating sawdust.
This will be a door prize for an annual church meeting later this month.
