This is the next in my holiday bowls. Kind of on a theme now. Another router bowl. Cut out an MDF template with scroll saw and OSS and glued up pieces to look like a painted Easter Egg. Woods used on this one were Maple, Lyptus, and Walnut. I think it turned out nice. This is the first of several easter bowls. Bowl is 2” tall and about 10”x 8”.
Does anybody else remember doing Easter Eggs where you’d put that decorated plastic sleeve on them and dip them in hot water to make it shrink-wrap around the egg? That’s what the change in grain direction at the top and bottom of the egg reminds me of.

Great looking bowl Robert. But hey, that plastic thing you’re talking about…..that was for my kids…not me. Best we could do was write on the egg with wax so the stain wouldn’t coat the shell. Ain’t too cool when you live on a farm and most of the eggs are brown!

I have to agree with Gary. Mine were waxed and dipped. And to be quite honest, none of them looked any good untill after they were peeled and ready for salt and pepper. lol. Great job on the bowl Robert.
