There Is the Bowl Making Through the Use of Circular Saw





There is the boul making throngh the use of circular saw on the photo (the saw blade diameter is 190 mm)

Step 1:

1. You need to begin by marking two circles on the cylindrical workpiece billet.

Step 2:

1. Then you need to set the stops on the circular saw. The distance from the top of the saw blade to the stops is the diameter of the workpiece billet.

Step 3:

1. The saw blade should be below the table level. Install the workpiece billet over the saw blade and activate the saw.

Step 4:

You need to make next actions very careful. It’s dangerous. You need to raise the saw blade on the working circular saw by 1,5 – 2 mm, and then rotate the workpiece billet by 360 degrees. Repeat this action as many times as necessary to get the cavity of the required diameter.

Step 5:

Make the octagon from the cylinder.

Step 6:

Form the edge of the bowl.

Step 7:

Cut off the excess at an angle of 45 degrees.

Step 8:

You need to cover the product with the solution of linseed oil and beeswax.

The bowl is ready!

Step 9:

The whole process can be viewed on video.

    Having been a victim of my own stupidity when operating a table saw, and knowing the dangers of having your hands too close to blade, I have to agree with the prior posts that indicate this project should be avoided at all costs. A home-made wooden bowl is not worth the loss or damages to fingers, hands, etc...

    The bowl looks nice I have to admit, however this is Insanity with how dangerous this is. I would suggest that if someone was to try this I would build a jig to hold it down and prevent kickback, but also to turn the wood for you to keep your hands away from the area around the blade. I don't want to be the safety police but this is extremely dangerous and an inexperienced DIY woodworker could easily mess it up resulting in a lost hand or finger.

    There is a very high risk of kickback rotating your workpiece on the blade.

    I appreciate that you have said "it's dangerous" but it's more than that... It's an extremely poor idea... You're inviting the piece to be thrown and your hand pulled into the blade.

    I don't think you should be instructing people to do this... If you want to make bowls get a lathe!

    It appears there is more than one way to "turn" a bowl.

    I'm a competent woodworker and user of power tool, but this is a ridiculously dangerous project this should not be encouraged

    That is pure brilliant. Never would have thought you could do that.

    I like the method you used. The final shape of the bowl looks great.
