Yet another Bowl

About a year ago I threatened to make a bowl using resin as a feature ring. When I made my first river table I really liked the copper colored resin so I made a mold and mixed extra resin.

The problem encountered with this set up was that a marriage between wood and a dry resin bar became an issue. Again enter MJR, he suggested using Superior polyester as a glue medium. Well, another problem – working time is reduced to about 3 to 4 minutes so I ended up with 5 separate glue ups for one bowl blank. yeaaaaa

I worked thru that and cut my wedges, then again another issue. Glueing the wedges together in such a short time span. Fortunately I had some clear Gorrilla glue on hand.

the down side to that is the dry time. It suggest 24 hours but I gave it 12 and it worked

After hand sanding with the random orbital and setting the RM I made my first cut and all looked good

and as the feature pictures show, it was a successful venture. Good news, in the near future I’ll bore you with more resin bowls. lol
There’s enough in these blanks for 4 bowls

So have you way with my latest entry and enjoy

MJR, Jim, bambi, Pete, Tom, Thanks
This was really a test, I had no idea how the resin would act on the RM – it worked out well

That copper is just incredible and looks great in this application as much as the table!
