This is another bandsaw bowl that I made for my mother’s birthday. The woods are purpleheart, bloodwood, bubinga, paduak, walnut, and the accent lines are ash. The finish is polished water varnish.

That is one beautiful bowl. Very good choice of colors!!
Why do you call it a bandsaw bowl? Was it not turned in a wood lathe?
