I actually made this bowl last spring, before I discovered LumberJocks. I’m adding it now so that my LBJ gallery will be complete.
This was wood turning project #3 for me, and my first real attempt to make a design ring. On my previous project, I made separate rings composed of contrasting woods, and then stacked the rings in an attempt to make a pattern in the bowl. The problem with that was, if the rings weren’t perfect, neither was the design.
This time I glued together the contrasting woods and then cut from them the ring segments. Much better I think, and opened up additional possibilities to me for making more complex designs.
Thus this bowl was the genesis of my next project (#4), which better captured the potential of this approach.
Can’t wait to see how my next project (#6) turns out. Just starting that one now.
