I was asked awhile back about how I chose the design for a Swirl Bowl that I made. Here is a picture of the rings ready to be glued up, and then arranged in several optional designs.
The first bowl is assembled just as the rings were cut off the blanks.
Next one is each alternating ring rotated 180 degrees.
Next is about 1/2” offset on each ring to create a short swirl effect.
Next is about a 1” offset on each ring to create longer swirls.
Last one is a 1” offset thet is reversed direction half way down the Maple swirls.
So which one would you choose?
