rice glues together and turned on a lathe. if you can put rice in a abowl why not make the bowl itself out of rice.

Great use for common household item. I can see some dyes or stains working well on this. Maybe even dye in the glue. What kind of glue did you use for the bowl? Is there any ‘finish’ on the bowl? What did you sand it with, (can’t resist) ‘rice-paper’? Great idea. I did one like this using sawdust and wood chips a few years back all compacted with glue in a half-gallon milk carton, took weeks for the glue to dry. How do you glue the rice together? Do you use some type of mold or form? Please give us LJs more detail!!

I never would have thought to use rice. Very cool turning.

this should answer some question:

ordinary glue was used, about a week to dry,spray painted with white enamel paint.

so, logically, next would be a real coffee mug?
