That’s a cool bowl and to not be made with a lathe is also cool. Can you show us a pic of how you set that up to cut it out round on the table saw?

I’m thinking this took an awful lot of time raising and lowering the blade! Or is my thinking off the mark?

Wait, in looking at that second picture closer, it looks like you turned the bowl a blade width at a time, and kept the height the same, is that right?

I’d be curious to read an instructional blog on the jig and the use of the jig in making this project. Is that a possibility?

Thanks. The jig involved a large lazy susan that I bolted down around the blade with the work piece clamped to the top. I would spin the piece as i raised the blade very slowly. The hard part was centering the jig to the top of the blade at its highest point.

What a great project. It proves “necessity is the mother of invention”.

Very nice. I’d sure like to see a picture of that jig if you’re of a mind to share.

I looked but can’t find the jig I used. I made these a couple of years ago for a crafts fair and I think I scavenged the toggle clamps for another jig. I’ll make another one and take pictures of the process. Thanks again for the kind remarks.
