Project Information

This is my first attempt at a bowl from a board. Its made from Red Oak, Purpleheart and Bloodwood. During the build I learned a lot about glue up and slippage so a few joints are kinda loose and I now have two screw press clamps for the next one.

Overall I think it worked out well.

I love the pattern and the finish is really nice, I think nothing is a loss if you learned something but even with a couple mistakes this is far from a loss in my opinion.

The glue joints are not as bad my bowl gouge interior work. Ouch a catch or two. They are only noticeable if you are closer than 9 feet.

Well, it's quite beautiful from where I'm sitting, a few hundred miles away.

Love the design and colors!

For something that's supposed to be sticky, glue sure is slippery when you're trying to clamp pieces together.

Nice work on your first bowl from a board. Did you bandsaw 1/2 rings or scroll saw whole rings?
I think it is tougher to glue the rings together than most people suspect.
Thanks for sharing.

This is absolutely amazing!!! I am really impressed that it was your first try. My first try at most things usually ends up in the scrap heap. What was your build process on this?

Thanks everyone I liked making this bowl. I did all cutting with a band saw and held pieces together by hand while gluing and with rubber bands. I now have hose clamps and screw press clamps for my next bowls. Here's a nice site to look at what's possible. http://www.dennyedwards.com/index.html

This is just amazing and beautiful! Did you cut them on an angle on the bandsaw? I'm assuming so, but it would be nice to know.

I'd love to tackle something like this. Any more details you can provide would be appreciated by everyone, judging by the enthusiastic response to your project.

Fine job there… I had similar problems with glue joints slipping when I did a bowl like this.
