Machining two sided wooden dishes has been a challange for me, but here are a few photos.

photo01

White Ash from our bush lot, I glued 4 pieces.

photo02

Laminated pieces like this will prevent the dish from warping.

photo03

about 3 inches wide and 7 long.

photo04

I used the same candies in all the photos to help indicate the size of the dishes.

photo05

Sugar Maple also known as hard maple, I cut this tree in the 1980 s and stored it under the deck.

photo06

As you can clearly see some bugs or worms had their way and chewed it up pretty bad.

I glued together a couple of pieces and thought I would carve a dish. Also note there is a hole through the dish.

photo08

Same amount of candies as above.

photo09

Cut from the same cut file as the dishes above.

Black Walnut, I changed things a little and made a larger dish.

photo014

Black walnut is a very nice wood to carve.

photo015

The raw block of wood was 12 by 5.5 inches and 2.125 thick.

photo016

I used the same amount of candies as the photos above to indicate the capacity.

Quarter Cut Red Oak, a block of wood given to me.

photo018

I wanted to try a round dish.

photo019

This turned out pretty nice.

photo020

Block was 6.5 by 6.5 by 1.75 inches thick.

photo021

And again I use the same amount of candies.

photo022

Black Walnut, this was the first wooden dish I machined with my CNC.

photo023

I could have made the wall and the lip a little thiner, maybe next time.

photo024

YUP same candies.

photo025

White Ash Laminated, but when I machined this dish I made a mistake and cut too deep while machining the top dish side.

photo026

Then flipped the material over to machine the bottom and learned I had cut too deep.

photo027

I made a correction and cheated the machine and ended with a small lip on the inside of the dish.

photo028

As my Dad used to say, a blind man on a fast horse would never see that. YUP same candies.
