There’s not too much to brag about here other than the 4 color resin and how it’s intregated. The center ring usually tells the story of the bowl in that it shows how the resin was placed on glue up.
Picture 5 & 6 show the glue up and how critical it becomes regarding matching the rings to each other and it shows the 4 colors – purple, green, copper and bright silver.

The bonus I referenced is this

When I make a bowl blank I always make them long enough that I have at least 1 replacement wedge just in case I screw one up along the way. I got lucky this time, didn’t mess any up so I reshaped the 3 left overs and made a cheese slicer. It talks a little while to do this but I’d rather spend a little extra time and make a worthwhile product than throw it in the trash. I never figured out what I might be making on a piece like this but $35 for a slicer is more palatable than $0.0 return in the trash.

I had to edit to mention that the bowls are wormy chestnut and walnut. The cheese slicer being made from the same material, I sealed the holes in it with clear gorilla glue, ran it thru the drum sander and used the ros to sand to 3000 grit after a spritz of water

Thanks for looking and have a GREAT day

You do some fascinating work Dick.

Its always rewarding to recover something financially from doing a great job too!

3000 grit now that gets the brain active I will check my stock and see if some RedIronbark offf cuts are getting nervous here!

A good mix of color all around. I agree, cutting a few extra parts doesn’t take as long as the cussing if you mess up along the way, then you still have to go back and make new parts, or pitch it, have a small fire, whatever.

Cheap insurance, and if you can convert it into another project, that’s like found $$$$$$$ :-)

Thank You Sir – it takes up to 10,000 grit to bring resin up to a shine but it should be done wet. I just wanted to get sand marks out but I ended up with a super smooth slicer yaaaaay

Absolutely correct – usually the extra wedges are accumulated and I can work them into another bowl.


Very interesting and really nice work.

I love your bowls with the contrasting mix of resin and timber.
The bonus cheeseboards are very different to standard timber boards and look good sir.

Nice work Dick, and using the extra components for the cutting board is the correct thing to do. “Waste not – Want not”

Thanks – yes I always save the extra piece and they usually become another bowl.

thanks Tony, the lumber choice and resin colors can make a different appearance, sometimes good and others not so good
