Default Simple bowl

Found a pile of cut offs buried in a corner so I glued them into a slab, cut that into chunks, glued those plus a couple of pieces of plywood into a stack and set it aside. Found the stack and for lack of anything better to do, hogged out the center with a Forstner and bowl bit combo. SWMBO decided the “thing” as she referred to it should be round so the outside was subjected to the bandsaw and Ridgid spindle sander and edges rounded. The finish simply Britwax.
The real question, what will SWMBO decide to use it for. As the inside diameter is only 4” Not my problem��

That came out great, Jon, Good use for the scraps, i am in the process again of gluing up scraps for a project. It takes a little effort, but why throw away or burn up wood that can be made into something,

And there is always the challenge of trying to envision what a pile of pieces “could” become.

Should also acknowledge Papasombre for the idea of including the plywood.

Nice. Candy dish. Make nice gifts.

There is no such thing as scrap wood, merely small pieces waiting to be used.

That's a really interesting bowl. Looks just right for wrapped candy, nuts, car keys...

Very nice and what a unique method of construction compared to a lathe.
