Bowlarama baby.

I had dialed in my sled so well for cutting staves, I couldn't help but go ape$h!t crazy and cut 350 pieces.

I even stopped to do a few laminations.

Total man hours to cut the actual staves for all 15 bowls (4 haven't been put together yet).....1 hour.

They fit great, gluing will go fast.

Wow, you are a bowl blank creation machine.

Looking forward to seeing the final pictures.

Fingers crossed you are able to find some customers. These should be an easy shape for people to utilize for many purposes.

Dang man, you made some serous progress in short order. I can't wait to see them turned. They're going to be beautiful.
