This was a somewhat belated birthday present for my mom. It started as an offcut piece of scrap 3/8”ish thick. I used the jigsaw to cut out circles and then arranged them in such a manner that as I turned it the best spalt would stay showing. As you can see its not perfect, but it was my first bowl, so don’t be to hard on me! Actually, let me know what I could have done better, so maybe my next one will be perfect.:)

Hey Saw4 I think this a real cool bowl and your technique seems good . I’m not an expert turner but I sure like what I see.

The only thing I think you could have done better was post more photo’s of it: looks great.

thanks guys! Yes mom loves it, and did exactly as I expected. Filled it up with almonds covering up my “handywork”. Needless to say I eat lots of almonds when I visit! :)

A great looking bowl. The grain is beautiful
