The rim features end-grain, book matched sections of Tigre Caspi from Peru. They are separated by Padauk and Satinwood. The base is Walnut with two layers of Goncalo Alves and Zebrawood, and a layer of Padauk and Maple just under the rim layer.

The bowl is a little over 9” in diameter and almost 7” tall. The finish is Tung Oil.

Oh my goodness – very nice work! I love the woods in combination. Truly beautiful.

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.

Your bowls could be tapestry, just incredible.

Very vibrant and elegant looking, I love it. The third picture, when you look at it quick, looks like there are holes in the bowl where the white wood is. It gave me a double take. It would look fabulous in my house!! ;-)

Very nice. I love the Tigre Caspi, and the fact that you book cut it is an elegant touch.

Just out of curiousity, what glue are you using to adhere the segments together?

I use Titebond III almost all the time. I have used a dark-drying version where I wanted to emphasize a glue line and Titebond II between light colored woods.

Another great design and turn. Your bowls are always so colorful and vibrant. Fantastic job on the book matching sections. Nice touch.

Keep it up.
