Trying out my new Delta 46-460 lathe and love it. It’s such a step up from the HF 14”x40” play, play lathe that I had. This is the first attempt in making a dovetail bowl. There are a few errors, but not bad for not knowing what I was doing. It’s made from black walnut and hard maple. It’s almost 5” high and 10” wide. Over all, it was easier to make than you might think.
It’s was late last night when I posted it and left out some details. Just a sliding dovetail joint with a 1/2” router, then I cut the half circles cut on the bandsaw. I was searching on YouTube for something new and found this bowl here: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=200B23AC7D271D38 when I first saw it, I said no way, but once you see how, it’s fairly easy to make. I have many idea on how to make them different. From mixing up the wood, like make each layer maple, walnut, maple walnut, by cutting each of the wood in half and making another sliding dovetail.
