This bowl is 10” in diameter, about 5” high and has Goncalo Alves for the base, Canarywood for the first layer and Bloodwood and Goncalo Alves (end-grain) for the feature ring. The diamond was formed by the book-matching because of a natural light portion of wood in the board. Unfortunately there was only enough length to produce one. However, I liked the effect so much that I made other bowls (one of which is used as the thumbnail picture for Taid’s Turning) with a light colored wood introduced to give the diamond effect.

This one, like all my bowls is finished with Tung Oil.
