I had more fun in round 2. I dug deeply into the scrap bin, and came up with a lot of variations.

Round 3 gets under way this weekend … and it will include more bowls and my first (dramatic pause) cutting boards!

Hey Henry I have been thinking of similar projects for Christmas, really nice work and good looking wood combinations!

Did you make your own templates and which bits did you use?

Most of these templates came from Peachtree USA; I got the set of 5 template set from them when it went on sale. The bowl bit I’m using is from Woodline, and it’s clean and dependable. Round 3 will have some bowls made using templates from Woodline. I’m also going to make my own templates for some of the designs in round 3.

That’s a lot and great variety of routed bowls. There’s always a great use for scrap woods. Good thinking!

They all look fantastic. Like the designs and the wood combos are attractive. Creative use of scraps as well. Great work!

It’s easy to make your own templates from 1/2 or 3/4 plywood or MDF. Bit I use is 1 1/4 bowl/tray bit from Woodline (flat bottom, rounded edge with guide. Port Ordford Cedar is beautiful in a tray.
