It's still a bowl yet different

It’s pretty easy to spot the difference – there’s no resin ! Actually I thought I’d do something different and a LOT easier than resin bowls by inserting another feature in my bowls.
Wrong again – theoretically w/o resin a bowl can be done in 3 days max. That’s great on paper but in the shop when you change or add anything there’s more factors involved. Fitment, glue time and milling all change from theory and habit. Everybody here knows that already, so it’s nothing new but when your tooling is not right, it’s yet another factor to deal with. (see my post in the coffee lounge)
So bottom line my 3 day batch of 5 or 6 bowls took over a week to complete. Yeeaahh

I’m not really complaining because I always have fun making the bowls, I was just pointing out that everything is time consuming and sometime more than anticpated.

Thanks for looking
Have a great day in your shop.

All, really pretty, Dick. You have been busy, despite tooling setbacks. Cant beat German precision. Freud is Italian, so…............

Really loving that purpleheart, walnut, sycamore combo.

Hi Dick
Just to let us know that your mind is still working overtime. I really like them. Funny how those little round things become ovals. Good design.

Dick,
Very interesting and intriguing with the round or oval features, really nice touch, these are great.
I’m guessing these are oval shaped due to the slant on the bowl side, and these were inserted as round dowels. The sloped sides also account for the scalloped appearance, I believe, but I’m stuck on visualizing how you assembled the blanks with the dowels. Am I way off base here? Do you ever take work in progress photos?

Also, I am in agreement with crowie, a few extra days in the shop is a good thing.

A week for a 3 day batch of bowls? Sounds like you’re having too much fun in the shop. I’m with you. There are times when building projects similar to past ones you decide to perk things up and change things around. The shop would be boring if we didn’t.
Nice work Dick. The results show it.
