Small Bowls

Had some cutoffs, maybe 3 x 3 x 1.5 to 2" high, from blocking out turned lidded box blanks.  Decided to turn some novelty small scale salad mixing bowls.

What a wonderful exercise.  Used almost all the same tools.  Was willing to experiment with tool control a bit because "it was just a novelty bowl" and didn't have a lot of time invested.

Don, as said around here, "no pics, didn't happen"  Let's see these cuties.

Yes, let's see them if you can take a picture.
I also like making small bowls and seeing (hearing) what people use them for.

The point of the post was not to show what I made but offer a suggested exercise.  Seems like a lot of work to take a pic with my 15 year old camera, plug into the computer, start GIMP, load the photo, compress, save, THEN post here when so secondary to the purpose of the original post.

Don - I do the same when I core out blanks - the wood is not that large but it gives me a no-cost place to experiment with finishes and embellishments  Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Don, as I said, I've turned small bowls like the ones you described, i also posted them.
While you are certainly not required to post something simply because you mentioned it, there are many members who would benefit from seeing them. I understand if it's a hassle to post pics, I was simply asking for myself and the other (close to 8000) members.
