Looking to use up some scrap cherry and walnut and decided to make a couple of bowls. I like the way #1 turned out, though during the process, I found a couple of steps could be shortened. As a result I may make some similar bowls for the holidays. I also liked the simplicity of #2.

They are both approx 8” in diameter and 5” and 3” inches tall respectively.

Very nice. How did you make the walnut dowels? I tried turning walnut to insert in segments but never really got the fit to a point I liked. I was thinking about using a standard plug cutters. Any advice would be appreciated.

I actually used walnut dowels purchased from the woodcraft store. I tried plug cutters, but since the dowels went all the way through the side, my plug cutters did not give me plugs that were long enough for my purpose.

Have your say...
