Bandsaw bowl

I haven't done a bandsaw bowl in a long time but I saw this technique and had to try it. You put the 2 pieces of flat wood together with a sliding dovetail. Draw the circles on it that you will cut with the bandsaw. Separate the boards and then cut out the half circles on the bandsaw. put the halves together to make whole rings and then stack them up to make a bowl. Then just put it on the lathe and turn the bowl.

interesting technique ... thanks for sharing.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

do you make a series of rings with the dovetails in them and stack/glue them together? or dovetail 2 turning blanks?

It starts out as 2 boards with a dovetail groove running from end to end. That's why I call it a sliding dovetail. That way each half ring has a dovetail slot running parallel to the workbench if you lay them down flat. You slide the 2 half rings together so the dovetails engage. Then you stack these rings up. to make the bowl. I've tried to find the video that I saw but can't come up with it again. I think the guys name was Bob Hamilton. He does a lot of videos and they are very long an boring to watch but very informative.

John,
Neat idea with the dovetails. My buddies have made them but without the dovetails. I think I'll have to put these on my list of things to try.

Nice looking finish. I want more of a satin finish on this piece so I will just put a few more coats on it.
