Sycamore with Ebony stripes and a light brown veneer "Scroll saw" bowl

 Sycamore with Ebony stripes and a light brown veneer "Scroll saw" bowl
Love this


140mm x 130mm x 56 mm high. 159 grams. In this case a piece of sycamore was cut and two pieces of ebony (left over from a guitar fret board I made) were glued into place. Then after sanding flat and gluing a veneer to one side, a scroll saw is used with the table turned at an angle to cut out each segment, each of which are then rotated slightly and glued together. I love the square top and the shapes. Note the brown veneer is incomplete on the top surface as a slight groove was required in the making process, which you can see if you look carefully in the photos.


An exploration of the technique using a scroll saw to make a bowl from a flat piece of wood. This allows the bowl to have a matching grain and very little timber is wasted. It also makes some dainty and unique shapes. This has been finished using a melamine laquer, which Chestnut Products say is safe for Toys. On top of that a light coat of bees wax gives a nice lustre.
