I was inspired by a wood guild member to try a scroll saw bowl. But I always like it to be a challenge so I found this interesting one on line and downloaded the pattern. I had some mahogany so I used that, but the grain is so coarse that it had a tendency to crack with the pieces being so thin. I would use a more tight grained wood next time.
