My first attempt at free-hand routering these. I didn’t really have the proper setup &I I should have spent more time sanding. Red Cedar.

Look nice – kind of rustic – but will serve their purpose.

Cool bowls, rustic is good.I see that you and I have more in common that building porch swings. I tried my hand at routing bowls and learned that;

1) Use a core box router bit. They’re shaped like the end of your finger.

2) There is a lot more sanding going on that I ever would have thought.

3) Sand across the grain.
