Introduction: How to Make a Rounded Wooden Bowl - Using a Router
Check out the YouTube video of me making the bowl! There is a short version and a longer version.
Step 1: Glueing the Wood Up
The first thing I did was to cut the original piece up and glue it together to give it more width The bowl is made up of three sections.
Step 2: Drilling the Centre
The next step was to find the centre of the bowl and drilled a whole about 3cm deep.
Step 3: Using the Circle Router Jig
Then I used this simple jig I made to create two circles. The difference between the circles will be the outer wall of the bowl.
Step 4: Removing the Middle
Then using a forstner bit I removed most of the middle. I then went back with the router and made sure it was all level.
Step 5: Removing Excess Wood
I then cut around the bowl using my band saw.
Step 6: Sanding and Finishing
Using the belt sander, I sanded the outside of the bowl. Then I gave the project a couple of coats of Danish Oil.
Step 7: Finished Project
