I built this to give to my girls for Valentine’s day. It is built using the same techniques I used when building the Christmas Stocking bowl. I just glued up a red oak blank, attached a template, hogged out material with forstner bit, then routed the inside using a bushing kit to follow the template. Use a band saw to cut the outside profile and then it’s on to sanding, sanding, and more sanding. (I don’t own a spindle sander which makes this part very tedious)
I used a spiral upcut bit which doesn’t provide the fillet/curve on the inside of the bowl. I think I’ll invest in a bowl bit before I attempt another one.
