This weekend i made a couple of square bowls from some scrap pieces The first one is made from maple and walnut left over from a cutting board project. The second is Maple and Mahogany. The Mahogany is from a front door i replaced this summer. Over all i’m really pleased with the shape and color contract and will probably be making more of these in the future.

Squared, but nicely curved from inside. Those inlays look good too.

Those look great, I love the colour contrast.
Did you use a scrap piece along the edges to prevent chipping?????

Thanks for sharing,

Those are really neat! I’m guessing router and jig for the curving? Inquiring minds want to know! :)

The work you have done is certainly eye catching.
I took a second look to try to figue out the key and smart man realtionship… still thinking.

Hey everyone, thanks for the complements! Sorry for the slow reply, been a busy week.
These were turned on a Lathe. To try to keep the edges from chipping, i cranked up the speed of the lathe and kept the tools sharp and in the end was probably more than a little lucky. I did have a little tear-out along the edge, but nothing that couldn’t be sanded out.
