Composite Bowl


Composite Bowl


This wood bowl is made from two pieces of wood. The top is Steamed European Beech; the bottom is exotic wood from India. The band around the middle is 75% Lindsey Inlace mixed with 25% silver glitter.

I used Loctite® Professional Epoxy 5 MIN to secure the two pieces. I let them dry over night. I shaped and hollowed the bowl to completion. Using my diamond parting tool I cut a dovetail groove where the two pieces were joined. I mixed a sufficient amount of Inlace and filled the dovetail groove making sure it over flowed the groove. I wrapped the filled groove with Scotch-Blue™ Painter’s Tape so it would stay packed in the groove. I let it dry 24 hours. I put the bowl back on the lathe and removed the hardened extruding Inlace with a round nose scraper. I sanded the whole piece through 1500 grit sandpaper and put on three coats of Minwax® Helmsman® Spar Urethane and a top coat of Minwax® Wipe-On Poly high gloss.
