Great looking bowl. From the design to the finish it turn out really nice. What type of bit did you use on the router?

Aloha Larry! I used a 3/4” top bearing bowl and dish bit. It leaves a nice rounded edge on the bottom and the guide allows for nice smooth uniform sides all the way down. It saves me a lot of sanding time, which we all love so much!

Aloha Chris. Thanks for the info on the bit. I take it you used a template for the design, but did you have to use the template when using the router as well?

Larry I used the template for the interior and just the bandsaw for cutting final outer shape.

Thanks Chris. I figured you used the BS. I would love to do Hawaii like this, but to damn many Islands in the chain, and if you do just one Island, they ask about all the others.

Larry I had a fellow Hawaiian here in Texas who was homesick so I made him a 16×12x1 Maple cutting board and did the Hawaiian island chain inlaid in Walnut.
