Special thanks to Mark Plaga (@mark_in_raleigh) for helping me learn to use the blend tool in CorelDraw.
Thanks also to Todd Hartzell for teaching me about CA glue wicking.
And finally, thanks to the wonderful staff at TechShop in Raleigh, where I do all my laser cutting.
Step 1: Draw a polygon
Step 2: Resize the polygon
Step 3: Convert polygon to curve
Step 4: Make the curves smooth
Step 5: Resize the shape
Step 6: Copy the shape
Step 7: Offset the sizes of the shapes
Step 8: Create the outer ring
Step 10: Create the other outer ring
Step 11: Blend to make concentric rings
Step 12: Prepare the laser cutting
Save your design.
Now you are ready to laser cut your shapes!
Step 13: Stack up the laser cut pieces
Step 14: Glue the bowl together
Then, repeat the drops in the corners of the bowl for several points around the perimeter of the bowl. Give the glue some time to set up and you are done!
Once you get comfortable with the process, you can make all kinds of bowls, jugs, urns, etc...
