Laminated bowl

Here is my first attempt at a laminated bowl. Walnut, maple and paduak. Bowl is 8" diameter and 2" tall. Small foot left on well because I like bowls with feet (and it keeps me from turning throught the bottom ). Finished with 5 coats Doctors Woodshop High Build Friction Polish.

Here are some shavings just because I've never seen maple shavings from dry wood so tightly curled.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

That's really nice looking. I like the single 'stripe' of paduak, it gives it some unique character.

That is really a sharp bowl, I like the contrasting colors and shape, very nice.

Ditto x 5

How did you make the laminations? I mean, what tools did you use to prep the glue edges, what type of glue did you use, how long did you clamp the pieces for ...

Pretend you're talking to somebody who's never glued two pieces of wood together. (Oh, wait -- you don't have to pretend )

I flattened one face on the jointer, ran the other through the table saw to get to thickness and then cleaned that one up on the jointer as well. Used Titebond 3 and 4 Bessey K-body clamps and left them clamped overnight

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

That's really nice!

...and most of the maple shavings I've been getting lately look like sawdust!

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Nice bowl. A word of warning on the padauk, it looses the lovely red-orange color over time and turns brown. It may end up looking similar to the walnut. Unless there is somebody out there who knows how to prevent that from happening.

If the paduak is kept out of direct sun it loses its color much slower. I've also never had it go completely brown, it develops more of a dried blood color.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I dont like....its ugly. Just kidding. Its very cool and looks real sharp . I have been thinking about trying one and I think yours has just been the insperation to do it. I am thinking its best to glue up woods of simular density so they sand at the same rate???

Nice bowl. I did a laminated bowl in high school. That would have been around 1983. I should do one again too.

As for your different timbers, using similar density is a food idea. A way around it if using different density timbers is to use a rigid backing pad on your paper and just keep it moving

I sand my bowls with the lathe in reverse using a 2" disc on a semi-flexible pad chucked in my drill. Didn't have any problem with this one, as it is as smooth as a baby's backside ;-)

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Curiously - what is the advantage of having the lathe in reverse?

Thx

Nice, the padauk really sets it off.

RRBrown, knottscott and many others were banned, they didn't just leave. They were banned for standing up to the new owners that are destroying this site. Come join us all at woodworking chat, the best new woodworking site on the net!!
