The top was assembled first as it is easier to fit an assembled piece to the bowl rather than to make the individual pieces fit. This was made for a friend in New Mexico as a gift. It is made from soft maple and bloodwood.

I am curious, what are the dimensions? The finish looks flawless, and I like the designs on the sides. A very pleasing form to the eyes.

This is really impressive! It looks so good it is easy to underestimate the effort that goes into that much detail. Well done!
