no previous part Part 1 of lidded bowl series Part 2: UH...There's something growing on your bowl »

Well I started this turning some time last week to go with the dozen other projects I have going. The idea is to inlay some marquetry around the top boarder and to also make a lid and finial. The marquetry will be leaves and branches and will be an assortment of material like wenge, cocobolo, and maple.
Here is the bowl. The rest will come in the following weeks, months, years, who knows.

As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.

Sweet. Nice shape.
I can just imagine what that will look like with finish on it. That grain will just pop.

Very nice Keith,

You didn’t mention the wood species, could it be Bamboo?

Looks great so far. Heck, I’d be more than happy to throw some finish on that and call it good. Can’t wait to see the progress. But if you’re anything like me, we might have to wait a couple of months to see the finished product with all of the projects taking up an hour or two here and there.

-- Cheers and God Bless
