I just got this one done in time for the show tomorrow. It is a 5”dia.x 5” high Cedar yarn bowl.
It is finished with satin lacquer and 3 step buffed.
I added some shots of the saw and the cutters I use on the slots. The last show shows the filling of the big crack that was in from the outside. I almost scrapped this piece on account of that. I left the one bug hole in the front. That is the bug’s signature
I just found one tungsten carbide cutter ( third from the left) and did all the carving with it at a slow speed after drilling the holes in the slot pattern. It is a Kutzall bit ( https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=kutzall+carving+burrs&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=33876396235&hvpos=1t3&hvnetw=s&hvrand=17069540417510475868&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9017523&hvtargid=aud-263816198344:kwd-10927688559&ref=pd_sl_7odtxbke68_b ) and they come in all different shapes. Woodcraft has a very good selection of the coarse and fine grits. Great carving bits.
