First thanks to LJ Branch for his clear instructions on making chevron style feature rings. I have made a three piece chevron before but never one with this many parts. The bowl body (about 10 1/2” in center X 5 ” high) is ash with a walnut top ring for contrast. Feature ring made from purple heart, yellow heart, walnut and maple. This 214 pc. bowl was a fun build. There are so many options of ways to put the segmented chevrons together you can come up with several different appearances. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for sharing.

That’s a beauty. These segmented bowls drive me crazy. I can never make up my mind how I want it.

This looks like one of those you either get right or they go pear shape, Boy you nailed this one, love the design, the timber contrasts work real well
