The base of this bowl is primarily Leopardwood. Maple, and Monterillo. The center of the Hexagonal shape was less than perfect so I drilled it out and put in the decorative Satinwood plug. The upper layer is Cherry and Padauk. The finish is Tung Oil as usual.

The bowl is about 2.25” high and 9” in diameter.

Fantastic bowl. Your segmented wok is always stunning! Love the design in the bottom.

Keep it up.

That is sharp. I like the choice of woods and your pattern layout.
