Continuing the discussion from Scroll saw bowl reborn:

Been working with @jordanloshinsky to assist him in making his squiggle bowl design a reality on the Glowforge. Here is what I have come up with so far.

In cardboard and hot glued. The biggest challenge is figuring out how to accurately position each successive ring. I’m not that precise of a guy.

This next is the 1/4" acrylic that I found. It didn’t cut all the way through on some of the inner rings so I had to force them apart and broke a few. Reminds me to do a test of wavy circles and not just straight lines to make sure that settings work for different designs. Should have done 85/15 with two passes.

This is stacked and not glued.

I have a feeling that I’m going to use this 1/4" acrylic up pretty quickly. It’s nice stuff. This design would work better with thinner acrylic though since I can only cut a bowl of 10.25". It appears a bit thick.

Going to practice the design on a few other materials and have some ideas in the hopper for cool effects.
