Gift for Professors

I recently did a genealogy search on my grandfather, and incorporated the services of two wonderful lady professors in New Jersey, my cousin, and her friend ,They were very helpful in my search,so i decided that they should be rewarded for their efforts. I made these little bowls using three layers of shop scraps, and some extra corian that was laying around the shop. The bowls are about 4.50” wide, and 1.75” deep

That is a very interesting use of scraps, shows that you shouldn’t discard your little bits.

These are some good looking bowls and now you have given me an idea of how to use my scrap paper counter top material.

It looks like, feels like, and machines like Corian without the grit and comes in many different colors!
