Not long ago someone had posted a project of spice bowls that were made on a lathe only I can’t remember who it was but it gave me an idea of what to do with the small tree limes (logs) I had sitting around.
The single bowl is Texas Cedar Elm, the other two sets are Walnut and Mesquite. The only difference is these aren’t lathe bowls these are lidded bandsaw bowls. I wasn’t able to create another bowl from the Cedar Elm as it was just too hard and wasn’t allowing the blade to cut straight through. I used my log jig to secure the small logs so that they didn’t spin out of my hands when slicing through them.
The mesquite and Walnut set bowls are also nesting bowls.
Another used for these bowls would be in the bathroom as cotton ball and q-tip storage. I used Watco’s Butcher Block finish to keep them food safe and sealed up the open knot holes with epoxy.
Thanks for viewing.
