Well, my Wife broke the little ceramic bowl that she kept on the table in our Sun Room. She used it when she took off a piece of jewelry to keep it all in one place. I went out to the shop and glued up a piece of Walnut between two pieces of Maple, then cut it into 6 segments. The finished glue-up was about 2.5” wide. I then cut the segments and glued it up. The finished bowl – measures 5” x 2” Finished with 2 coats of clear shellac and 3 coats of lacquer.

Very nice Bill. Did your wife really break the ceramic bowl or did you actually break it so you would have an excuse to make this nice wood bowl..?

That’ gorgeous, Bill! And best of all, it won’t break if she knocks it over.

Your design on the bowl is great Bill. I hope when I get into a intricate turning it turns out that nice. I really like it.

That’s a very impressive bowl, Bill. I must try working with a glued up blank one day but I do worry about it all flying apart on the lathe!☺

great job on the bowl, I noticed that you recess the bottom of it, what is the purpose of this and how do you do it?
