I finished this project a couple of weeks ago and just go around to posting the photos.
Made with alder, cherry, walnut, maple, and black veneer. Approximately 12” in diameter and 4 1/2” tall.
The glue up process did not go well and some rings moved causing misalignment.

LOVE the woven basket look !!!
I’m guessing a tremendous amount of work, but well worth the effort.

The movement just created an illusion of beauty. Well done.

This is really a thing of beauty, not only as the finished project, but also the amount of effort required to complete it.

very creative in your laminations, I admire all the work that goes into segmented type bowls, especially this one.

Thanks for all you comments. I got the idea for this bowl from a YouTube video titled; Meldrums Masterpieces”.

AT first glance I really thought it was a basket. Very nicely done.

very nice job Julian, if anything the misalignment creates a more authentic woven look (imho)
Like your timber selection & assembly
Cheers

I agree with Pete about the misalignment adding to the woven look. If you hadn’t told me it was misaligned, I doubt if I would have thought it wasn’t intentional.
