Hi,

Something I threw together with some leftovers.

I really like the color combination and the angles of the bowl.

Good looking stuff.

Very cool! Is this romboid or it’s just photo taken on different angle?

It’s a compound bevel joint

Very good job in using leftovers. I love padauk and save all my cut-offs for things like this.

Sometimes the left overs make the best projects. Great job on this one.

what did you do for the bottom? Inset in rabbets, inset in grooves, simply glued on to bottom of sides? Just curious.

Hi,

I cut a groove at an angle the same as the bevel. It floats in the groove. Check out my other projects. I have a pic of another similar project with a view looking into the bowl.

Cutting the groove at the bevel angle lets the bottom float and not have spaces when you look down into the box.
