LOL,, More redneck wood working! I turned out these four cherry bowls On my Table Saw and they came out great! I use very dry Cherry for this project and the saw cut through it like butter.. Each bowl took less then five minutes to turn sand and finish.. CHECK the VIDEO link to see the whole process.. Thanks

Sweet bowls, Izzy!
That is a cool set up you have on the table saw. You could make a real business making bowls when they go that fast!
Cheers, Jim

The first time I’ve seen a salad bowl made faster than it takes to make a salad! A fun jig experiment.

I love it, very nice! I would like to know if your jig could make the side walls thinner. Maybe by changing the blade size to something smaller than the 7.5.

Another great jig Izzy. Woodworking CAN be done with just a few tools and innovative jigs like yours.

Thx for the comments, the side walls can be thinned out both by cutting the exterior thinner by raising tbe blade or the interior can be thinned out as well by moving to jig forward into the blade.. both way work depending on what size is wanted.. the only real limitation is the thickness of the base of the bowl.. thanks again everyone..

Awesome. You are a psychopath and I love seeing the crazy stuff you post every few days. Keep it up. I have a few challenges for you:

1. Turn a pen with a chainsaw
2. Fell a tree with a router
3. Resaw a slab with a block plane
4. Make yourself dinner with a drill press.

Now get to it!

P.S. I am with you on the naysayers. It’s your shop. You make the rules. In their shop, they get to make the rules. Woodworking needs a few outlaws.

Izzy first let me just say you’re awesome, next as Oyster said work your way in your shop, and finally seeing as how you can turn bowls I’m wondering if you have another jig for turning smaller items such as knobs or handles for drawers or for tools I’d be pumped to see that jig/video.

Thanks man and keep doing what you’re doing!
