Isn’t it amazing how you can leave your computer in the house with a plan firmly set in your mind, walk to the shed and begin construction, and finish up with something which vaguely resembles what you planned to do.
BUT, I love it and I hope you do too.
So, it’s not a mistake, just a new version.
The timbers are all Aussie, 2 types of Tasmanian Oak, Jarrah, Queensland Yellow Walnut, some Walnut Veneer, and a Red Timber commonly known here as Dead Finish.
Sanded to 400 grit and polished with Shellawax Glow.
The dimensions are 8 inches diameter and 5.5 inches tall.

C & C Welcome and thanks for looking.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That turned out real nice Bob, you got the dizzy part right and should be very happy with the result. Is it all segmented or some bowl from aboard, I’m with Rob it must have been hell gluing it up. Well done and a great finish.

Hi Guys,
The whitish rings are 12 segment rings and the piece rings are made similar to the “Bowl from a Board” idea.
Thanks for the response.

Bob, the more I look at it the dizzier I get. Looks great. Must of been hard to concentrate on the glue up.
