    Here are the first two attempts at power carving dough bowls. The second one I attempted a rim. These were carrying moisture so the are coated with mineral oil hoping that will slow or stop the cracking. I need to get some sanding equipment that can do the curves and reach into the bottom
    I am really fortunate that my bride wants machining mark left on them so no futher sanding on these YET

    Nice work.

    The first (and only) dough bowl I made was segmented. And I didn't have the right tools to smooth it out correctly. I ended up making a sanding mandrel out of some flip-flop material and used 2 or 3" sanding discs on a coarse grit to sand it down.

    You'll probably get a request to sand it more the first time dough sticks in it and it takes a long time to clean :)

    My wife wants to use them as table center piece things ,you know pit different do dads and whatnots ,some garland abit of ribbon or a bow. I agree that fu her sanding will be beneficial and if I make some more for its more intended purpose I most likely will need better sanding equipment. But for now I am blessed with them being " just the way I want them"

    Almost afraid to say it ,but I think I like making them. Got a grinder with the right type of switch, but it still has me thinking on each cut ,not just where to cut but how to so I don't create a kick back situation,
    . These will run away with you if you are not paying attention.

    This is maple, was going to be firewood until my bride decided that she wanted a dough bowl.
    The bottom I can sort of get with the random orbit sander. The ends are a little too narrow as I sloped it in towards the bottom both on the ends and sides.
    Thanks for the input it is always useful and appreciated for me.
