Here is a maple bowl with slots in the Harvey Fein tradition, about 12 1/2” in did. Finished with walnut oil.

Thanks for looking

Interesting design, nicely executed. Is that the natural color or was it stained ? Seems to have quite an orange hue to it.

Hey MonteCristo. The Maple was somewhat lighter and whiter prior to finishing but the walnut oil added a little orange and darkened the piece quite a bit.

Nicely done. Very nicely done! Did you use/make some sort of a jig for cutting the slots?

Hi Jonathan. Yes I use a router on a table set to the center line of my lathe. Then using the indexing feature I can cut as many or as few slots as I wish.

Pete – I’m really digging you negative space pieces. I’d love to see how you’ve got your router mounted.
