Halloween2011, spiderweb bowl

I toyed with several ideas and almost waited to long to start. The bowl was made with my scroll saw and bandsaw. I would do a few things different if I had to do it again, I would use maple for the web and make it out of thinner wood. The good thing about this is I can use the middle section, that I cut out, for a bandsaw box later.
Woods are Oak. Mahogany and redwood (I think).
One coat of Danish oil and several coats of wipe-on Poly.

Happy Halloween everyone. Gotta go carve a pumpkin with my daughter.

That’s cool, I love he spider web! Another spider web for a lid would be a pretty sweet addition, or maybe the spider would be better. Great job, thanks for sharing.

Pretty timely project. I like it. The fact that you have material left for a bandsaw box is a bonus.

Very nice! I really think that you should go with Shop Tinker’s idea and and top it off with a spider.

If you had to guess… About how much time did this one take you?

Thanks everyone. Shoptinker- I did think about a spider and the idea of a web for a lid is pretty sweet. Maybe a web lid with a spider on it! I may have to make an addition. Thanks for the idea. Kristoffer- It took about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to cut the web and probaly another 3 hours for everything else, not counting dry times for glue and Poly. I’m not exactly sure because I started it on Sat. and finished up on Sun.

This is just awesome!! I just saw this on the ‘daily 15’. What a cool idea. I like the lid idea because you will not be able to see the web once the bowl is filled. I always have that issue with scrolling and painting on platters and plates. They are nice, but the design gets hidden.

I really enjoyed seeing this!

Thanks Sheila. If I ever finish making all of the ornaments and candle trays that my wife wants, after I let her order from your website, I might get to work on a lid. LOL
