I found pictures of the two Router Bowls I made last year.
The large bowl is two layers of Walnut and one of Maple. The wood came from a local sawyer who reclaims trees downed by weather or trees removed for construction projects. I used the CMT Bowl & Tray kit which includes a couple of templates, a bit and a collet extension. It is finished with Watco’s Butcher Block Oil & Finish.
The small bowl is from a Wood magazine pattern. It is made from a block of Coyote I bought a Woodcraft. I had never heard of it before but it had a nice grain pattern. I won’t use it again for a bowl as it has a very open grain and is difficult to get smooth. It too is finished with Watco’s Butcher Block Oil & Finish.
