I know making a segmented bowl is way above my pay grade, and the more pieces you glue up, the better it will look.
I want to see how a simple one goes first, Im still getting limited time and as frustrating as that is in itself, along with discomfort, I want to keep things flowing easily out there.
Took whatever I had in shorts or narrow strips over 1.5 inches width.
Used the incra mitre 5000 sled , made each cut 30 degrees so there is 6 sides.(12 would have been nicer, glue up will drive me batty)
made each layer 1/2 inch less than layer on top of it.
Using a 2 inch piece of maple as bottom.
heres some quick shots, no glue, have to go get some.
Got some new stuff this week.
And citizen(along with the help of my jeweler) did the right thing when they couldn't fix my eco drive watch, and it just slipped past the warranty stage, they allowed me another watch under 250 dollars.
I have a few watches, I needed one for when I work outside,one that I could easily see the numbers, I kinda liked the military style of this watch.(best of all, it was free and retails for 125 more than what I paid for the previous one)
having a good day. heading over to bobs favorite bagel café for lunch shortly.
3 hours in the shop is good enough for me today. as usual, as much as I like to bore everyone, heres some pics off my cell.
*I usually save all those strips and shorts for cutting boards, but really? how many cutting boards do I need to give away free, it aint the money, its the time spent sanding them and oiling them. really? everyone I know has one of my cutting boards.
time to give them bowls.Im hoping when I turn it, theres enough with 1.5 inches width to get the full circle, otherwise, back to the drawing board and I might actually have to do the math instead of winging it.
