A friend of ours from church, wanted a bowl as a wedding present for their nephew, because the nephew so admired one I made for them for their anniversary. This bowl is 10” X 4” high, made from Jatoba, Zebra wood, Blood Wood, Maple, Yellow Heart, Katalox, Purple Heart and Curly Makore for the base. Veneer is maple and black dyed veneer.

WOW!!!! Squared. That is beautiful. I love the colour combination that you used.
Thank you so much for sharing your outstanding work.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
