I have been carving bowls, that resemble spoons for a while, but this is the first bowl that is in the shape of a leaf. It was carved from a piece of Quilted Maple from Oregon. I used a number of power tools for these bowls. After cutting out the basic shape with the band saw, I set the depth of cut with a drill press and Fostner bits, followed by a angle grinder and Foredom tool. Sanding was accomplished with a drill gun, and various disks and drums. It is approximately 12” long, 5” wide, and 2” high. It is finished with a salad bowl finish.
These carved bowls have given me a great deal of satisfaction, and I plan on many more.
Thanks for looking, Jim
