These bowls are entirely cut on the scroll saw from 3/8” Baltic Birch Plywood. I am making five (5) bowls at the present time and have three completed to date. I applied Minwax Pre-stain Wood Conditioner, then the bowl shown here was stained with ‘Summer Oak’ and finished with spray varnish. It takes only two (2) pieces of 6”x6” wood to make each bowl, as the ringed layers are cut from one inside the other on one piece of 6”x6” and the top and bottom pieces can both be cut on the other 6”x6” piece. They make great candy bowls, or can be used as a small gift basket of candies or perfume or whatever and then gift wrapped in clear or colored cellophane paper and tied up with a ribbon. These bowls are a great hit with the ladies.. they all like them.

In the past month there have been 5 or more “non-standard” ply projects here on LJ.
Which is all VERY cool!

I really like your design. Defiantly going on my Fav’s list.

Excellent design!!!
I wish I had the imagination to do things like this.
I too am putting this on my favorite list.
Well done.
