A fellow on another forum posted a picture of a couple of Ringmaster bowls he did with a ‘splash’ from the bottom so I decided to see what that idea would look like as a drip rather than a splash. This is what I came up with. Red oak and walnut, approx. 9 1/2” dia. x 8 1/2” high. Comments and critiques welcomed as always and thanx for looking.

Great job.
A really interesting idea with a good effect. Does the Red Oak go all the way to the top on the inside???

Thanx for sharing.

Thanx for the nice comments, folks. I think I may have found my little niche in the Ringmaster world.

Bob – The very top walnut ring is what I call a rollover ring. It slopes both directions – inside and outside – with a very wide bottom surface. This is resting on the top oak ring. So the answer to your question is yes and no.
