Got hooked on the idea of making bowls and related items using the router versus the lathe which I also have done. Would like to make some deeper bowls in shapes other than simply round. Deeper might be up to 2 1/2 inches or so deep. Started with a simple oval pattern I made as the template in some 12/4 poplar. Have watched several videos also on the subject. Here is my question: as I work deeper what is the best approach? I hogged out the bulk using my forstner bits and have used my patter bits to clean up the side down to about 2 inches. Still need to get another 1/2 inch or so before I start using my bowl bit to shape the interior and the bottom. Looking for suggestions as to the best way. Thanks for any help and look forward to learning from you all.
