Segmented Bowl

I finished my segmented bowl. It was my first project to start with rough sawn wood. I learned a lot on the way. I learned that power tools are more fun than sanding, but that sanding makes so much of a difference in the finished project. The tablesaw, drum sander, drill press, bandsaw and router are wonderful tools. They made quick work of most of the project. Kindlingmaker even made me a couple of pencil holders out of the scraps. I hope to become more proficient at the finishing process. I expect experience will make that happen.

Very neatly done.
Did you make your own bowl template for removing the stock of the inside bowl/tray?

Woodworm- We bought the kit from CMT. It had the router bit and 1/4 template. Kindlingmaker used the 1/4 template to make a full one. It made routing so much easier. I never had to move the template until it was all routed out.

Mickey you did a great job on that. What did you make the full pattern from? Mickey, I think I have the same router or at least I have a Bosch, but I do not remember a dust collection port…mind showing some pictures of it.
