Cedar Bowl

Furnished content.

Cedar BowlThis is a gift for Dick Versluis, from our woodworking guild, who acquired a lot of cedar from a 150 yr old pickle vat that was disassembled years ago and stored in his neighbor's barn . I got one plank and wanted to show Dick what it looked like turned.I stumbled across a You Tube video from Sprague Woodturning ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv8RD9LvS0M ) where the guy was inlaying twisted copper wire in the rim of his bowl..so I just had to incorporate that into this one. I stripped the insulation off about 4 ft of 14 gauge solid copper wire and twisted it the my drill just as he did. He used soapstone and I used turquoise for the added fill inlay.This bowl is 7” x 2” high and finished with Danish Oil and buffed and waxed.Below are some of the process shots:Cheers, JimTwisting the wire:
Fitting it to the diameter of the groove
Glued in with CA glue
