I made this bowl to give to Roger who supplied me with all this very good plywood. He was really surprised to see what can be done with it.

I also tried to see what it would look like when cut into a flame shaped Obelisk. Not as pretty as red box elder!!

They are both finished with clear matte spray.

That’s a darn nice looking bowl Jim, top quality plywood for sure. Agree with you on the obelisk but still interesting.

Boy that plywood bowl definiately gives a cool look. I tried to turn plywood and it just splintered baddly, and it also catched a lot on the tool.

Thanks for the nice comments on the bowl. I almost did not get it finished in time to take to Roger. I glued on a plywood tenon to turn the mass of laid up pieces. It was going good until I got to turning the inside. I got a little too heavy on the gouge and the tenon split and the bowl flew into my trailer. I had to glue on an oak tenon and re-turn the outside to get all the dents out of it. Don’t tell roger that!!

Don’t ever use plywood for a tenon. It does not have the uniform strength of a solid piece of wood.

Just beautiful Jim, I’d take bets that even you couldn’t turn a bowl from the crap plywood available here. There is a specialist wood supplier not far away but they have ceased selling plywood because they couldn’t compete price wise with the big bulk stores. Jim, what are the chances of some shots showing how you glue-up the ply next time you carry this out, pretty PLEASE!

G’day, Harry. I have some stock in the shop right now and I’ll glue up a bit taller one for you today and post all the pics. I will have to make an oak tenon for it, though. You know what happened to the plywood one!!
Oh, and send me your address in a PM…......Cheers….......... Jim
