    A bowl from a board

    I have a friend who is a meticulous wood worker as well as a wood turner.

    I sent him this board that measured 5" sq. X " th.



    This is what he sent me in return. The bowl measures 5" in dia. and is 3" in height. Amazing in my estimation!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    But Seriously, That's cool.

    Beautiful work and expertly executed, but it's making my brain hurt to think about how it was done...

    I'll take a stab at it. Cut off each corner of the square at a bevel (45deg?), then glue them onto the bottom of the remaining octagon to make the foot.

    I did find one tutorial on the web where they basically cut the board in half, and then cut concentric half rings at an angle through both halves, then glue them into rings on top of each other.

    Very cool concept....

    Hi Brent & Bill; I think he used to do it that way.

    As I understand his procedure now: with a very thin small parting tool, he parts off rings at approx. 45, then glues them on top of each other. Hence a bowl from a board.

    He describes here how he got to where he is now. Simply amazing!

    If you examine th bowl very closely your will see the various tiers in it.

    Good reference to one of my favorite movies Brent and a great looking bowl to boot.

    You are using Bonetti's Defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting considering the rocky terrain.
