Ipe and cedar bottom economy bowl. Not perfect was a little askew but I like it.

It’s sitting on the two cutting boards I made for Christmas gifts.

That came out great Gary! I’m trying to visualize the process you used to cut the blanks before turning. Did you cut half circles out at a 45 deg. tilt, then stack and glue?

Cutting those rings would be a PITA for me, but I do appreciate the good work.

That bowl looks very familiar. I turned mine in 1966 and they are still in weekly use.
