Nice bowl, looks like a lot of layout to keep it straight lined. Ima thinking you have quite the handle on this type of work.

Had to look up a WeCheer handpiece, is it working in a punching motion like a chisel, or a sawing motion across the work? I spent some time at U tube, and saw several vids of guys using one to scoop out wood with curved chisels, most of that was pretty rough to watch. Didn’t see anything with checkering like you have here, much less an organized pattern of any type.

It is reciprocal … sort of like a woodpecker. This handpiece came with 5 chisels, a wrench, and an adapter to mate it with the Dremel tool. I got it from Treeline USA ( https://treelineusa.com/reciprocating-handpiece-for-dremel/ ).

You know the old saying … ”He who dies with the most tools wins.”

Seriously, that handpiece and the 5 chisels that come with it are worth every penny. Just make sure it is compatible with your Dremel tool.

It wasn’t that bad. My lathe’s indexing system made sketching the matrix pretty easy, and the WeCheer handpiece and chisel are fun to use. The hardest part of this project was the sanding … I made the mistake of using some really inferior sanding mesh that left scratches that were hard to get out. I should have used Abranet and started with 180 or 240 … live and learn.
