  1. Wife's Christmas This Year

  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. Routered dish for grandpa

    Here is a routered bowl I made for my grandfather for his 90th birthday. It is made of walnut, maple and cherry, with mahogany "stringing" if you want to call it that. Dimensions are about 12"x6"x 4" tall if I recall correctly. My grandfather is essentially blind, but could make out the...
  4. Router Bowl's

    My wife gave me for Christmas last year the router bowl bit and collet extension so I could try my hand at making these bowls. They were featured on a Woodsmith show and in one of there magazines. I made the template for the bowls out of 3/4" mdf. The blanks for the bowls are made up of left...
  5. 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...

  7. First bowl (no lathe)

    Another quick project and another first for me. I decided to try my hand at making a simple bowl. I'm quite happy with the results for what it is. The woods are cherry, maple, and birch that has some birds eye figure in it (bottom piece). It's actually a cutoff from a glue up for a cutting board...
  8. Peanut acorn bowls

    Recently, I was in some tavern and besides beer, they served peanut in some plastic bowls. Immediately the idea crossed my mind that wooden bowl wood be more suitable to tavern rustic ambience. I glued pieces of walnut and oak to get acorn contrast, although beech with walnut wood be better...

  11. 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.

  13. 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...

    First router bowl, made from 8/4 maple, finished w/ danish oil & felt rounds on bottom. Made the template w/ MDF. Should have sanded the inside more prior to finishing. Next project plexi base for plunge router to simplify the process.

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...

  17. 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.

  20. Jigs & Fixtures
    I purchased a set of these stop blocks from MLCS. Item #9313 Supposedly they are to slide in a track and make a convenient adjustable stop block for cutting operations. What I found however is that if used the way it is designed, you are going to have to place the stop block on the right...
