My sister, Jeannie, from Illinois visited this weekend and asked me if I could make her a bowl to feed her dog dry food. She wanted his name on it too! So I laminated up some plywood on Sat night and we turned the bowl on Monday. I had her do a little of the work on the inside. Having never turned before, she got a little too aggressive with the hollowing. She got a catch and threw the bowl off the lathe and about 20 feet. Luckily half the tenon was left and I was able to chuck it up to finish it for her. Next time I’ll have her do something a little easier so she feels good with turning.
It is made from a stack of 8 pieces of maple plywood with a plywood tenon glued on the bottom to hold it in the chuck. The woodburning was a first for me. I had bought my wife a nice Colwood woodburner and I have never used it. I printed the name off the computer and traced it onto the bowl and then used a small round tip to burn the letters. It was quite fun!! I’ll have to use it more often.
The bowl is finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.
Jeannie called today and said Marshall loves his new bowl!!!!!!! She is holding it in the last picture…................Jim
