I sit here and say “how did he glue that up….” dude, I’m lost. It is a beautiful bowl; but my mind won’t seem to land on the method. Can you please share a little to ‘prime the pump’? :) Thanks

THANKS FOR YOUR NICE COMMENTS
TIM IT IS NOT ALL THAT COMPLICATED
THE BOX IN THE BOTTOM IS 3 DIFFERENT KINDS OF WOODS CUT AT 30 DEGREES AND GLUED TOGETHER WITCHES GIVES YOU A 3D BOX
THEN CUT 4 PIECES AT 30 DEGREES A LITTLE LONGER THAN THE BOX
AND GLUE THE TO THE END OFF THE 3D BOX 2 ON EACH END
THEN CUT TO PIECES OF THE SAME WOOD THE SAME LENGTH AS THE 3D BOX PLUS THE 4 PIECES
THAT IS GLUED TO EACH AGE OF THE 3D BOX AND GLUE THEM TO TOP AND BOTTOM TO MAKE THE WHOLE
THING SQUARE THEN CUT OR TURN IT ROUND THEN GET A ANOTHER PIECE OF WOOD AND BOER A HOLE
THE SAME SIZE AS THE 3D BOX AND GLUE IT IN TO THE HOLE THEN TURN THAT ROUND THE GET ANOTHER
PIECE OF WOOD AND TURN A HOLE IN IT AND GLUE IN THE PIECE SAND FLAT IF YOU MAKE IT AROUND INCH AND A HALF THICK YOU CAN CUT IT IN HALF AND IT WILL DO 2 FLOATING BOWL BOTTOMS
THE BRICK DESIGN IS SIMPLE JUST CUT YOUR PIECES 15 DEGREES OR WHAT EVER ANGEL YOU LIKE TO MAKE A RING AND CUT PIECES TO FIT IN-BETWEEN EACH SEGMENT AT AROUND ONE QUARTER THICK GLUE ALL THE PIECES TOGETHER TO MAKE A RING THEN MAKE ANOTHER RING AT ONE QUARTER INCH THICK AND GLUE IT ON TOP JUST REPEAT THE PROCESSED TILL YOU HAVE A BOWL BLANK THE HAVE FUN TURNING IT
HOPE THIS HELPS YOU IF NOT LET ME KNOW AND I WILL TAKE SOME PHOTOS AND POST THE

Hi Branch,
Just love that pattern.
It’s very striking and effective, great choice of woods.
Thank you for sharing this piece.
Congratulations on a great job.

Bob.

Hi Branch, I wrote a comment on this project the other day, at least I think that I wrote a comment,, looks as if dummy me forgot to press the “Post This Comment” box again, Being a retired bricklayer, I can really appreciate this project, nice work on this one.
