Well I finally got around to finishing the swirl bowl. If you check out my prior project, I had all the rings laid out in different configurations and asked which one I should make. This is the final result. It is 13 ½” in dia. and 12” tall. I added a Peruvian Walnut base and a Peruvian Walnut, Mesquite, Maple & Birch Veneer rim on top.

These “Swirlies” continue to BLOW MY MIND.
That is an Absolutely AWESOME piece of work.
I am trying to convince myself to have a go at one of these, and I will soon. You have inspired me to get into action.

Thank you for showing this.
