I used Bubinga, Sapele, Maple & dyed Maple veneer on this one. (My 3rd Swirl Bowl) The finish is Lacquer.

Wow, I cannot imagine the time and effort that went into making this bowl. You have done yourself proud and I am envious of your talent. Excellent work and combinations of woods.

An amazing piece there my friend, looks like feathers. One bad thing for a top notch classy bowl like this on here, it will get a lot of nice comments, , but hardly ever gets a Daily top three, or even editors choice, If you was to drive a railroad spike in a 2” X 4”, and post it, you would stand a better chance. Just my 2 cents worth.

Excellent turning, no question about it. That is some fine craftsmanship at its best. Well done.

Wow! What a nice looking piece this is Dreggy! Certainly an eye catcher if you like beautiful unique craftsmanship like this. Like Rockbuster says this one deserves “Daily Top 3” or even “Editors Choice”! Guess we’ll just have to wait and see, For me, I think this is truly magnificent work!

These bowls are beautiful, and a lot of work, but not beyond an intermediate woodworkers challenge. I would allow about 30 hours to build one, maybe a little more for a first one. Here is a video I used to figure out the process to build one: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=259994630695591&set=gm.219396594774841&type=1&theater
