In my last blog ( A project in process http://lumberjocks.com/sydney/blog/33426 ), a month ago, I had promised to show you the finished project. Here I’m with my 100mm deep bowl that was only one flat blank. Photo #2. To enhance the bowl, I added one more ring to its rim. To replay your memory back, I’m resending some photos from that blog. I have to tell you that I had a broblem in sanding this bowl, as sanding dust from the darck timber went inside the white timber and stucked in the endgrain area. I, unsuccessfully, used compressed air to blow it away but I achieved only a little progress. Any advice for the future will be appreciated.
  • photo 5 shows another option to glue the rings.

That bowl turned out great Sam, I couldn’t get onto your blog above either but do remember you posting it and was interested in how it would turn out. Can see more of these being posted. Well done.

Sorry Mic and Bob, it was my mistake. I did not leave space between the link and the brackets. Now it is OK. Thank you for that.

Great looking bowl and great idea on how to make it. I know I have seen an article or tip on keeping dark sanding dust out of the light wood next to it, I checked a few places but could not find it. I think I most likely read it in either Wood Magazine or Woodcraft magazine. If I come across it I will let you know.

How about a tack cloth? I use one after turning cork grips for fishing rods. Grips are mixed light and dark cork rings.

Great Bowl! My first thought in keeping sanding dust out would be to somewhat fill the grain after your final cut on the lathe before you start to sand. You could try using a hard finish like a urethane or CA or something like that basically to act as a sanding sealer. I havent tried it myself in your exact situation but I think the concept could be applied with some success. This would also be dependent on what kind of finish you would be going for on the finished product. I dont think it would work if you wanted a straight oil finish.

Hi Sam. A great looking bowl and an original design. I especially liked the angle jig you used to get an accurate cut. I have done a lot of cutting like this on the lathe myself but I just used tape to mark the angles. Your jig looks like a much better way to do this! Thanks for posting this along with your bowl.
