Bowlmate

Making the Bowlmate from a Willow log with Chestnut legs.
Using the Gransfors adze to hollow a Willow bowl.

I really enjoyed this and will have to go and liberate some more of that great pile of Willow logs.

Both look great, Robin! How did you manage the angles for the legs? They look very uniform.

I just eyeball the angles - there's no great science involved.

Fine looking bowl and a handy clamp to hold it!!

Nice job, and nice bowl. Did you found your bowlmate worked well and do you have any suggested improvements.

I've only made one bowl so far Rob and it worked brilliantly. Just used some slithers of Willow to jam it in place. I'll let you know if I think of anything.

Love the bowl and the bowlmate. Especially as the name earned me a Rob Wood bowl :)
