Two bowls I made from three thin blanks joined and glued together. Looked very plain so decided to carve 4 butterflies and flowers on one and four roses and leaves on the other. Unfortunately the middle blank
was darker that the others.

Bob, having the darker color show up it’s like a box of chocolate! I was thinking you did that on purpose. *BG
Very nice. Thanks again for sharing your projects.

Thanks for comments above. Hey, Pat, can’t sleep on the lathe for the spilt baked beans.
