This was the second bowl I’ve made with the CMT Bowl and Tray bit. It’s made out of maple and walnut. I finished it with a food grade mineral oil, so you can eat right out of the bowl. It was a lot of fun to make.

I have used the CMT Bowl and Tray kit also. Yours came out wonderful. I did the segmented bowl and I had trouble sanding the inside bottom to a nice surface. Any advice you want to pass on?

Thanks for the warm welcome. I like it here. So many projects on here for inspiration. MickeyD, I’ve seen your segmented bowl and good job. I was attempting to do that, but I stop half way through. I was going to use walnut and jatoba. Now I’m thinking maple instead of jatoba. But anyways, the way I was able to sand the inside of my bowl to a nice finish was I used this sanding disc that goes on the end of a power drill. The way the sandpaper ‘flops’ over the sides of this device, creates a nice soft edge. Therefore, it won’t dig into the corners of the bowl. I got it at Lee Valley.

Thanks for the comments everyone. People keep mentioning about this Woodsmith show. I would love to see it, but we don’t get it here in Oshawa (45 mins. east of Toronto). I believe it airs on PBS, and we do get PBS from either Detroit or Buffalo, but still no show. Does anyone know where I can get this online?
