Had a bit of time to do some things for me so I made a few new style bowls on my RingMaster. I just had to try something a ‘bit different’ and these were the result.
The big one in the first pic is a pretty standard shape of a hollow vessel. The biggest difference is the open segment format. I’d never seen one of those done before so I figured out a way to do them without excessive amounts of hand fitting required. The smaller bowl is what was left over from making the big form. They’re both just poplar and black walnut with a satin poly finish.
The other two pics show what a ‘strange’ mind can come up with. I think of the hollow form shown here as kind of an ‘in and up’ design. So I wanted to see what a ‘down and out’ design would look like. With a little creative cutting and gluing I was able to make this bowl with a single board. Actually a lot simpler to make with the RingMaster than I anticipated. There will be more of these in my future.
Comments and especially critiques are welcomed.
Thanx for looking.
