Scroll Saw Dish & Eye Bowl Set
Follow the plans for the Scroll Saw Segmented Eye Bowl (download the sketchup plans here) up to the point where you would normally start to add the finish.
Clamp a dremel or other suitable multi-tool in a vertical attitude and mount a cutting disk as shown below so you can rotate the bowl to separate the top three rings while keeping the bowl perfectly flat on the worktop;
Sand the newly cut edge flat and rough-cut a base for what is to become the dish out of 1.5mm ply and glue it on before carefully sanding the edges to match the dish's profile.
Take what remains of the original bowl and again sand the newly cut edge to match the the edge already on the dish.
The finished project once suitably decorate will grace any living room or bedroom.
