G’day, Bob
Nice bowls, Bob. What did you start with, a layup of a lot of pieces glued together?
Did you have to find real high quality plywood without and voids?
I leave for the lake in 2 hours and I’ll be off line for a week!
Cheers, Jim

BEAUTIFUL bowls, Bob.
Winter will never stop us and turning wood is one way to keep us worm.

Not a big fan of plywood but those turned out great. I may have to change my mind about working with plywood.

Very nice bowls. On holidays for 2 weeks now so I might give plywood turning a shot.

Very interesting idea. Is this baltic birch plywood? Apple ply?

I’ll trade you a couple of days of this heat for those bowls! Outstanding work and totally unexpected!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Thanks for the comments. MC I get the offcuts from a cabinet making firm, usually Baltic pine plywood, have been caught by using the cheap crap from the lumberyards. Jim, glued layers up to a 8” cube, then cut diagonally across on the bandsaw to get the angle. Use the same method as setting up the perspex and plywood bowls, have not struck any voids with this plywood. Mark, sorry won’t trade, will have our own hot days shortly.
