I was experimenting while trying a technique I saw Mike Peace do where he turned a bowl using a 4”x10” piece of wood and while shaping the flat “bowl” a small rounded ridge formed that looked just a like a ripple in water so I decided to finish the entire surface with ripples to make it look like water drops caused the ripples. I decided to try this with a bowl to make a ring holder and this is the result. These are made from Bradford pear I have had laying around for a while. Finished with Howard’s Feed and Wax.
