It’s that time of year again.
Thank you Scott Smith

These are a big hit every year and easy as dirt to make.

The featured one is Bird’s Eye maple with Shellawax friction polish as a finish.
Man, it looks like it’s covered in glass !
The rest will be Sapele, Cedar, Cherry, Mahogany, Poplar, and whatever else I can drag off the rack.
I do segmented versions and the recipients go nuts over them.

My lathe will spin about a 12” bowl and they are super fun to make.

I’ll make a mess of these and they are always very appreciated.

I’m not much of a turner but these are easy and fun.

They’re looking good.

Do you do the “bowl from a board” technique?
Or do you just do random scrap glue-ups, layer, and turn?

You know I’ve always meant to turn some of these, but just haven’t got around to it.
