Candy Dish

About a month ago I cut up and glued the segments and today I was a little bored so I turned a candy dish out of it.Took about an hour to shape it.Really easy project.

Looks great. I just saw some bowls similar to these in Williams Sonoma. They wanted $70 each!

Yours is much better.

Nice work Gary. Geez man, you're getting good at this stuff. I'm loving everything that you're putting out lately. Keep it up good sir.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I set the mitre to 15 degrees on the TS for a 12 piece bowl.If its slightly off the disk sander does wonders.A few thousands of an inch is hard to detect.Think Incra mitre.

Slatron, the main key to doing segmented work is the joint. Any space in the joint makes for a project that will not work. I use a good crosscut blade and a very accurate miter gauge. It takes a little practice, but once you figure it out the possibilities are endless.
