Made bowls with the router for gifts this year and this is the only one I remembered to get pics of. Oh well, I made sure my wife got the nicest one anyway. Maple and walnut. Used the CMT bowl bit and extension. And my wife loves it!

I have seen this kit and wondered how easy it was to route. I have seen the video, but could you run through the step and ups and downs of using this.

It’s way more time consuming than difficult. The video does a good job of explaining it. I looked at the kits and then got the bowl bit and extension and made my own templates for different size and styles of bowls and platters. didn’t want to repeat the gift over and over. So lots of time drawing and cutting out templates. 4 things i found to remember were- 1.variable speed router because the vibration is scary at full speed, and 2.use a good forstner bit to clean out excess before routing, 3.oversize baseplate (mine’s 1/2” acrylic at 12×12), 4.shallow passes, taking just a little at a time saves lots of sanding later. Not real good at explanations, sorry. Just take your time.

Very nice, quite striking. That must have been some glue up.
