The flow and shape of your turning is perfect for the flow of the grain in your wood. A beautiful combination.
Very, very nice.

Very nice. My guess is that the body is Goncola Alves. The collar could be any one of several dark woods (e.g. Wenge, African Blackwood, Ebony).

Beautiful. I think Rich is right, the bowl looks like Goncola Alves (a.k.a. Tiger Wood).

Great turning…and excellent way to use a flatter blank without just making a bowl or platter. How far in did you hollow it? It looks like near impossible to hollow the entire turning?

Fantastic turning. Love the grain flowing with the design. Great shape and the dark color is a nice touch.

Keep it up.
