So I bought a Bowl/Tray system that uses a router bit with extension collet to carve out bowls and trays. The only problem I had with it was that you needed stock at least 18” wide to use the template that came with it (shown in picture 2). That’s a huge frickin tray!
So I drew up a similar, yet smaller template in CAD, cut it out with the laser engraver (pic 3), and made a duplicate using some 3/4” ply and a flush bit on the router (pic 4).
Being this was my first attempt, I mounted it to some scrap shelving that the library was throwing out (pic 5) and ended up with the finish product (pic 1). Can’t wait to try it out on some deeper stock!
