Another Bandsaw Bowl

This bowl is made of mostly small leftover pieces from other bowls. They are fun to make and seem to be very popular considering the number of views. This one contains Bloodwood, Maple, Cherry, Sapele, African Mahogony and Monterillo.

It’s about 9” in diameter and stands 2.5” high.

Beautiful piece. What kind of finish do you use? Exactly how does one go about making a bandsaw bowl? Or is that top secret?

I just made about 10 of these..they sell well in my shop..this one is especially colorful, has a nice irregular layout. Alot easier to make than segmented, aren’t they Bill??? Thanks for sharing

Richard,

I glue up my blank from leftovers into a blank approx 11” square. The thickness is the board thickness about 13/16”. Split the blank in half and tape back together. Draw concentric circles on the blank starting with about a 2.5” radius and increasing by about 3/4-7/8 in size for each successive circle.

Set the bandsaw table at about 45 degrees and cut along the lines. Reglue the appropriate halves of the circles together. Because of the 45 degree cutting angle they will stack into a bowl shape.

Michelletwo,

I still enjoy the strong symettry possible with segmentation especially with stave construction, but I must admit when the Tung Oil goes on and the colors pop, I do get a big kick.

Another great bowl. I always love seeing your creations. Thanks for the step by step also. One of these days I need to try this.

Keep it up.
