This instructable shows how to design, cut out, and assemble the pieces used to make such an octagonal bowl.
I made this at TechShop www.techshop.ws
Step 1: Materials and Equipment
Laser cutter (my TechShop has a Trotec Speedy 300)
150 grit sandpaper
5 minute epoxy
2-1/2" x 15" poplar (1/4" thick)
5" x 5" poplar (1/4" thick)
This instructable assumes some basic familiarity with CorelDRAW and a laser cutter. If you don't have access to a laser cutter, you can still cut out the box using other tools such as a scroll saw or coping saw.
