A simple technique opens up a world of possibilities for creating figured and patterned bowls. Nick demonstrates a simple jig that slices a board into rings, then glues those rings together to make turning stock for a bowl. This not only saves time and wood, it allows you to create remarkable, eye-catching lathe turnings from scraps.
The plans for the jigs and fixtures used in this video are available from
the Workshop Companion Store at https://workshopcompanion.selz.com/item/bowls-from-boards. This project plan also includes and in-depth explanation of the band saw and turning techniques, as well as the figuring necessary to determine the correct dimensions and angles for the rings, PLUS a virtual calculator that will do all the figuring for you!
