Bored in lockdown glued scrapbits together saved from bin then decided to add celtic bands

I was surprised at the result

I've just about ran out of glue so I will use it on another small project

The mancave has rarely been so clean

Thread: Fancy bowl

Hi good morning

It was our club's annual competition last night I entered this bowl and won

You get to keep the trophy for a year which is named after a much respected member who passed away

Two years ago So it is a real honour to have won it

There was about 25 entries all were really good bust I forgot my camera i.e. phone so will have to hope somebody sends me some photos

Saddam now happy sam

Hi all

This is a trial piece that has turned out pretty much ok

It is made from several differant hard woods the top is 16 wedge shaped pieces glued together and the bottom from the same woods the photo shows the format on the bottom

When turning the top it split at one joint so I managed to repair it with sliver of wood

Apart from that it was ok

I'm now a hoping a to make a larger one with a walnut border added say a foot diameter thicker wood and make it bowl

Comments gratefully accepted

P s to all readers come on let's see some of your work on the site good or bad it all ways makes a topical discussion

Thankyou Sadsam
