  1. Wife's Christmas This Year

    Made bowls with the router for gifts this year and this is the only one I remembered to get pics of. Oh well, I made sure my wife got the nicest one anyway. Maple and walnut. Used the CMT bowl bit and extension. And my wife loves it!
  2. Routed Bowls- Flower candy dishes

    These are a couple of flower-shaped routed bowls I made at my wife's request. Actually, these are the last two of a dozen made to be end of year gifts for women that she works with at various school districts she serves. The flowers are approx. 8" across and 1 1/4" deep. I used maple on some...
  3. Easter Egg Bowl

    This is the next in my holiday bowls. Kind of on a theme now. Another router bowl. Cut out an MDF template with scroll saw and OSS and glued up pieces to look like a painted Easter Egg. Woods used on this one were Maple, Lyptus, and Walnut. I think it turned out nice. This is the first of...
  4. Easter Egg Bowl #2

    Here's my second Easter-themed bowl. 2" tall x 7×9". It's Maple, Mahogany, and Bubinga. This one is actually sold already. I will deliver it tomorrow, just in time for Easter. Home made template and the CMT Bowl Bit w/ extension.
  5. A blonde, brunette, and a redhead.........AND A CHIPMUNK?!?!?!?

    The original title for this project was suppose to be, 'A blonde, brunette, and a redhead'. But, as I was in the backyard taking more pictures this morning, our backyard chipmunk came by and stole the show. He managed to stuff 8 almonds into his mouth. I've been feeding him from my hand for the...
  6. Routed Bowl

    This was the second bowl I've made with the CMT Bowl and Tray bit. It's made out of maple and walnut. I finished it with a food grade mineral oil, so you can eat right out of the bowl. It was a lot of fun to make.
  7. My first routed bowl

    This was the first routed bowl I made a few months ago for my mother. I used the CMT Tray and Bowl bit, which does a great job. I used a forstner bit to take out most of the wood which saves on the wear and tear of the bowl bit. For my router, I made a 3/8" acrylic base so the router can slide...
  8. Routed Bowls

    These are my first routed bowls. This is round one … round two is still in the shop, and round 3 is in the design phase. These started as Christmas presents, and they continue to evolve…. I was surprised how many tools I needed to use to complete these simple bowls. I used my table saw, planer...
  9. Walnut Divided Bowl/Tray

    This is a walnut tray I made using the CMT router bowl and tray bit. Even though the CMT kit comes with a template for making this tray, I wanted my tray to be a little smaller. So I made my own template as you see in picture 6. I did write a blog about this which shows the entire project from...
  10. Routed walnut and maple bowl

    Just a simple sectional bowl made with a router and templates as a gift. Woods are walnut and maple and the finish is butcher block oil. Nothing complicated but a fun and quick gift project. The white crockery was purchased at crate and barrel for a song. The current photos are after a year of...
  11. St Patrick's Day Project

    I've been really busy re-doing my entire shop space and needed to do something different. There's still some work on my shop itself to finish, but I decided to do this for fun. With St Patrick's Day coming up I made this bowl using a paper shamrock decoration I found in a dollar store to make a...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Fellow LJ's, I am currently in the process of adding a few desperately needed tools to my shop here in Gilbert AZ… I am taking the next step in my woodworking journey and want to make sure that I do it right. So here's the question… If you needed a planer, jointer, and a bandsaw and only had...
  13. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I am not sure but I think that in the US Robertson screws are not used if so I don't know why. Myself it is all I use they are to me the best screws to use, they never strip and you can get 3 different head size.
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Hey fellow lj members, I was wondering do I post blogs/ forum topics the wrong way?? It just seems like when I post something cool I barely get any responses?? For example I just posted updated pics of me and my fathers latest movements of a milling machine. I havnt got one response? Very...

  15. Blogs
    The Making of a Walnut Bowl/Tray I was visiting my parents over the Christmas holidays, when I noticed a plastic tray full of candy on the coffee table. My mom told me she got it from the dollar store. She also told me that she loves this bowl because of the divided trays. So, being the...
