This is another Patchwork Quilt bowl made from leftover strips and pieces, not because I’ve used up all my leftovers, but just time to move on. This one has some Cherry, Monterillo, Myrtle, Cocobolo, Maple, Padauk, and Walnut. Finish is Tung Oil and Wax.

Its a little over 9” in diameter and about 3.25” high.

Beautiful Bill. I have not heard of Monterillo, what and where is it from? I think segmented turning is so beautiful. Being a quilter I really like the patch work.

Monterillo is also called Tiger Rosewood and it comes from a small tree which grows in Venezuela and Ecuador. I have seldom gotten a board much wider than 4” and I guess that’s because of the small size of the tree. It works well for me in my work and it turns well.
