My inspiration for starting bowl carving was David Fisher’s “bitty bowl.” I’ve followed David for a long while and admire all of his bowls. This one moved me to action, wanting to learn bowl carving and to mimic the sweet little “bitty bowl.” The rest is a series of learning exercises, bowl #1 and bowl #2.
This bowl is from the same silver maple tree as the earlier bowls, and is much smaller due to an onerous knot in the log, and the desire to make a “bitty bowl.” I completed the bowl in late November 2019, passed it along to a recipient about a month later and have been remiss in documenting the result. (Hence, the approximate measures, didn’t write down precise measurements.)
My proportions are a bit different than Fisher’s, but instructive in learning how to design bowls.
