 How the Swimming Bowl was constructed

To see a larger picture just click on it.

First you need  to have rough idea of what you want to make

 

This is a rough profile drawing .

 

Second is to have a detailed working drawing

 

This is a fully detailed drawing with all dimensions of every part

 

Third is to cut the parts

 

Here is all the parts before the glue up of the rings

 

Fourth is glue up of the rings

 

Here we have all the rings glued

 

Fifth is glueing and flattening the rings

 

I use a press to glue up the rings starting with the base. Once the base is glued to the waste block, I turn that flat before glueing the next ring. I also turn each ring flat once they have been glued.

 

Sixth  start turning

 

Here you can see that I have all the rings glued together in the upper  and a lower halves.

 

Last is the completed bowl

 

This is the completed bowl with added  swimming rings
