The wood for this bowl was originally cut into strips and glued up to make a flat board, which was then cut into rings (cut at an angle) which were stacked and glued together to form the rough bowl. The bowl includes Oak, Purpleheart, Cyprus, Mahogany, and Maple-plus a few more.

Well done. I’m gonna have to try this glue-up. I usually turn each ring more. This is a great look.

Have you seen the RM. machine, it cuts them to the angle needed and require very little sanding. Wood workers friends site has a lot of them being posted and talked about. that is a very nice job.

Nice looking bowl. Did you cut it on a Ring Master. Great tool for cutting bowls.

I did this bowl using the ring master lathe. It does reduce waste quite a bit.

Ron have you built the sled for cutting segments for glue up making a board for the RM. I am working on one now. Allows for many different designs

Beautiful! I have yet to try that technique for cutting rings from a single board. Everytime I see a bowl like this I want to go try it.

I guess I’m not familiar with the idea of the sled…unless you are talking about something to let you cut the wedge shaped pieces to form up a flat circle that can then be cut into rings? I have a nice Incra miter gauge that I have found to be accurate enough. I thought about making a sled-but I have so many ‘things’ in my shop already that I can hardly find a place to set things down lol.

Ron I have friends that have the Incra 1000 and they use that to make the pie shaped segments like you do. They like that just fine. I do not own one so I am building the sled

Definitely a intricate piece of work but you have executed it flawlessly. Superb wood turning job.
