I entered the rabbit hole of turning with this bowl. It’s Figured Maple and was a great first bowl to carve and learn from. I took it down over two months to help it from splitting.
A simple bowl was what I was after. I bought a bowl blank knowing it would work well after playing with some log slices. It was then sanded to 800 grit before finishing it with mineral oil.
Days to Complete
A 2.5″ x 6″ Figured Maple bowl blank
Tools & Process
CNC machine all the parts, dry fit everything, glue up the joined parts, stain with 3 colors
The functional disc dropper at the bottom works great and causes all the discs to make a lot of noise when they come crashing down
