Tricky on a dome, Rick. How would you control the depth accurately? Again, not saying it can't be done, but i'd like to know it works first...

Rick's got the jig; I nominate Rick!

Iíve actually got a jasper jig mate. Itís how to run it on flat surface seeing your working on a dome. Hence my comment about building a box around it flush to give a horizontal surface to anchor from

Excellent idea to build a flat surface for it...box would be perfect...

Then a template for the circle and recess...trim router would be easier...Bosch Colt or Ridgid...

Rough cut with jig saw first...use your box for base for the saw...

Cheers for feedback Nick. I think I might give that a go mate. Iíve got two extra bowls in case (well in the highly probable event I stuff one up)

Even if I hole saw out the first cut and then build a circle template for the recess

Use thin material for the top of the box so you don't need to over-extend the bit...

Thanks for advice makes sense! Recess only needs to be like 4mm so assuming if I keep the thickness of template under say 6-7mm should be ok for most decent routers?

Some additional info...make sure you route in the correct direction...handheld would be left to right or clockwise in your case...maybe you know that already...

I agree with Nick. Just make sure the bowl is secured (sandwiched) to the box well.
