arbortech-logo1-300x94In part one of this sponsored project series, I discussed how you can ramp-up your power carving skills with Arbortech’s angle grinder attachments. These tools can really ad a new dimension to your woodworking repertoire. All of my bowl projects in this series, including the one shown below all came from scrap end-cuts—pieces left over from larger boards that have sat around my workshop collecting dust—which have now found a second life. This post will focus on the major steps and a few tricks to make this bowl with the Arbortech Mini TURBO plane and the Contour Random Sander attachments.

Simple power-carved bowls are a good project to tackle in a few hours to a weekend worth of time. The one below is a bit more of a commitment in time, and advanced skills required versus the previous two projects. Before you give this version a try (made from perfectly clear Burmese Teak), you may want to consider trying it out on a softer and less expensive wood like Walnut. Either way, this design uses some classic shapes and materials that were hallmarks of the Midcentury modern design.
