Several months ago I demonstrated a technique to create concentric ring bowls on the scroll saw. I thought that my bowl turned out pretty nice but Carole Rothman has taken the technique to a whole new level. Carol is a self taught scroll saw artists with a keen eye for decoration. She has a new book coming out published by Fox Chapel that I think many of you will be interested in. In the book Carole teaches all the techniques necessary to create her beautiful bowls. She teaches the lamination and sanding techniques that allow you to create segmented bowls that look like they just came off a lathe.
Do not let the apparent complexity of these bowls prevent you from buying this book. These are not advanced level projects. Anyone with basic scrolling skills will be able to complete one of these beautiful projects. The bowls do require a great deal of sanding to achieve the flowing lines. To see a demonstration of what it takes to complete one of these bowls check out the video in the link below.
