no previous part Part 1 of Juniper free form bowl series Part 2: Inlays »

Special thanks to the inspiration I found from lumberjock Scott Shangraws projects. (

I started with a half round chunk of juniper fire wood. A few hours of carving with a chainsaw, then my angle grinder with a round chainsaw attachment, and finally a 40 grit flap wheel grinder and here is what I have.

I used my dremel tool to route out any cracks, and added a few more lines as my mind saw fit to add some stone inlays for both something interesting to look at and as function to hide/stabilize any cracks.

Thanks for checking this out. More updates soon!

Please, keep em’ comin’. This is something I’d like to try, too – just haven’t gotten up the gumption yet. Looks very nice, and Scott does do some fantastic stuff, doesn’t he?

Looks really good. I can imagine that the Juniper smells good too while you work it.
