Segmented salad bowl made from red birch (yellow birch heartwood) and curly soft maple. Solid maple bottom segmented layers, sanded to 600 with a food grade mineral oil finish. Curl was from the same stock as i have for sale on here, pulled not for figure, but do to being narrow.

Very nice! How about trying this with some figured cherry? I haven’t done much lathe work yet and I can see why it’s addicting. Wood is addicting. I have brought home waay too much wood and still have my eyes on more.

Great look Barlow. The Yellow Birch is what I’m using for my kitchen cabinets that I’m building. It’s beautiful wood.
