November FOBL Showcase Artist

November FOBL Showcase Artist:
Don Rounsavill
Routed Bowl & Gifts 
Each month, The Brentwood Library hosts two local artists on the Friends of the Brentwood Library (FOBL) Gallery Wall and Showcase Display. The next time you pay us a visit, take a few extra moments to pause and savor these artists' creations. 
Artist Bio:
Don has been woodworking all his life. After retirement, he was inspired to make routed bowls. He makes his own designs and templates and occasionally teaches classes. His tools include a table saw, drill press, router, band saw, and a sander.
Don follows a simple process. First, he decides what wood he's going to use. Then, he makes a template, attaches it to the wood, drills out the center, and routes out to the template. He finishes off his creation with a band saw to shape, sander to smooth out the rough spots, and completes it by applying the finish.
