I made another bowl out of maple with wenge accents. To me, the wenge segments look like lightening bolts. The forth picture is a different bowl of course, but it has the plans I use to cut the segments (in case anyone is interested). I use millimeters instead of inches to determine to segment lengths because it makes the math easier. Take care, George

That is really cool, I love it.
The colour contrast is outstanding, and I agree they look like thunder bolts.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

I would have had a hard time resisting parting with $ for that one.

Have your say...
