These are a couple of flower-shaped routed bowls I made at my wife’s request. Actually, these are the last two of a dozen made to be end of year gifts for women that she works with at various school districts she serves.

The flowers are approx. 8” across and 1 1/4” deep. I used maple on some and cherry for others, one poplar and one red oak. I inlaid walnut circles for the center of the flowers.

As with my other routed bowls, I used the CMT bowl bit and extension. I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of that kit.

I really like these Robert. It’s cool how I can honestly say “The pictures don’t do them justice”

I know after getting the chance to see these in person I am definitely sold on the CMT bowl bit set. It has made its way on my “Must Have” list….
