Making A Maple Bowl with Maple and Padauk Inserts

I have made a second bowl from the maple that I got from a tree in Vancouver, Washington. This bowl is similar to the previous bowl in that I cut out the knots and imperfections and then inserted circular segmented pieces. For this bowl, the segmented pieces are made from padauk and maple. I also made a big padauk and maple ring around the rim of this bowl as this bowl was not very tall. I really like the juxtaposition of the natural grain pattern and the geometric patterns of the segmented insertions in this bowl.

  1. Hey Frank. I've been following for about a year but haven't seen much of your backlog from before that. YouTube suggested your video where you used Matthias Wandel's pantorouter. Do you find that it's completely useless if you have a CNC? Are there any applications the pantorouter could do better than the CNC?

  2. At this point you use your C&C so much I think it would be a neat project to do an entire bowl with your C&C. It would take a long time but at the end of the day your showing the capabilities of the C&C.

  3. Frank, when picking the axis points for the inserts to cut out of the bowl how are you choosing (from the bowl center location of the knot) and then setting up the hold downs for the piece and properly orienting it (the bowl) to the router's axis? I know you did skim over it but I'd love to have you show your method in detail and the agonies you go through. Truth to tell its like some miracle you don't blow out the entire knot or split the bowl with the first plunge.

  4. an idea for a furure project could be using lots of round plugs, could be randomly placed or arranged in a fishscale kind of way.
    Edit: whoops, was a bit fast, you mentioned it 😛

  5. Hi Frank,
    I agree that a bowl made from inserts would look great especially if you used a few different woods for the inserts.
    Do your bowls move much throughout the year with the different seasons? I think they look magical but it would be a crying shame if they moved and the joints parted away from each other.

  6. For making a bowl from all inserts, do it in stages. Add a few inserts, stop and turn it back down to the bowl shape. Rinse and repeat until all the original bowl wood is gone.

  7. Frank, love your work. wondering if you have tried bow-ties for repairing punky areas in the bowls. With your CNC it should be easy and use different types of wood to make it you, then turn it to final shape.

  8. I am a young person that has started woodworking since a few years but i would like to thankyou for inspiration you give to all your viewers, thankyou for the work you have put in to your wonderfully crafted pieces, and thankyou for inspiring me to challenge my self to create and learn the skill of woodworking

  9. FILL LIGHTS !!
    Frank,
    You need some diffused fill lights to balance the intensity of the Dental light so that on camera you get a bright(er) spot from the dental light ( "Key Light"), but not a blown out color balance. Not sure where / how the "back light" would factor into this since you are looking at the work piece on the lathe. I should know exactly how you need to do this, but I didn't pay enough attention all those years as mom's "assistant".

    ( you know, as kids, we never learn to actually listen to our parents until we aren't kids anymore, and then we wish we had….now, if I can just get the grandkids to listen to me when I tell them to listen to mom and dad… hmmm….then write the book!)

    Not to mention that you would have PLENTY of light to do the turning with, and, if positioned correctly, no shadows to speak of.

    Love your work Frank,
