Overview

Whether for vegetable trays, salad bowls or hors d'oeuvre platters, this kit lets you make gorgeous divided bowls quickly and easily. No lathe? No problem. A band saw or jig saw can handle the outer circumference. For the interior, all you need is this kit and a router. The kit includes two templates, a Bowl and Tray bit, and a collet extension, full instructions and an instructional DVD. The end results will astonish your friends. And what great gifts they'll make in a very short amount of time!

Bowls and trays made with this set provide an excellent use for scrap wood. Glue pieces together butcher block style to make a beautiful pattern of colors and species. The templates will withstand a lifetime of use, and with a little imagination they can be used to make several styles of bowls or trays. The DVD provides specific examples of how to modify your designs. The collet extension, used to make extra deep bowls, is also useful whenever your general woodworking requires extra deep cuts.

Great product - Great results! I've made several of each shaped bowl and have given them as gifts. I use several small scraps and glue them together to get a slab big and thick enough. Beautiful. I just need some more template shapes - 2 is not enough!

You've got to be prepared to carve out a lot of wood with a drill bit before using the router bit, but the results are impressive. I'm in the process of making three more for family and friends. The next bowl will be an attempt to glue up partial cut outs in a effort to spare some wood. The finished bowl is about 17 inches in diameter and 2-5/8 inches thick.
