This 15” bowl uses a sliding dovetail to join QS sycamore and silver maple. When the rings are cut on an angle the bevel cut exposes the dovetail making a sliding dovetail look like a regular dovetail.
This was my first attempt at a sliding dovetail. I quickly found out there is virtually no room for error if a gap-free joint is needed.
Finished with mineral oil and beeswax.
Pics 3,4,5 These are the mates/opposite of two previously posted bowls that I just finished. You may recognize the patterns from britboxmaker and proskywood, thanks again you two. Finished with tung oil.
Thanks for looking.
