This pot shaped bowl is about 8” in diameter and about 5” deep. The base is Zebrawood, then Bloodwood, a little more Zebrawood and a feature ring of book-matched end grain Canarywood and Padauk tied together with Walnut. I enjoy the effect of the book-matched materials. A little extra work, but the effect is often rewarding.

Beautifull Bowl. Outstanding use of color and grain (bookmatching) to give this piece a lot of extra pop.

Keep up the fantastic work.

Firecaster asked how many hours I put in. I get that a lot at craft shows also. It’s really hard to say since so much time is waiting for glue to dry. The end-grain book-matched panels take a couple hours of cutting and gluing. Then the bowl is put together essentially one level at a time. My best guess is about about 6-10 hours actual working time and overall about 3-4 days from start to finish. I could work faster if I had to, but then it wouldn’t be so much fun.
