I like this one better than most to date. Hopefully it is not the best I’ll ever do. The base is Satinwood, the first level canarywood and the feature ring is Bloodwood, Goncalo Alves and Maple diamonds. 10” in diameter and 4” high.

Beautiful work Bill! Do you have any pics of the glue up prior to turning? I am curious how you did such an intricate bowl.

Have your say...
