Lided bowl was made more than 7 years ago. It was built from vertically laminated plywood of four segments with maple lip and base. Flat ply was used for the lid. Almost 250mm in dia.
I replaced the photo after 4 hours with new three ones just because I did not like the quality of the previous picture.
So, #2 is a bird view and showing what I mean by vertically laminated ply four segments. #3 is showing a bird view of the lid which is built of two discs of 12mm thick ply, glued on the top of each other and turned flatly.

Nice piece, the ply is very intriguing, great work, I’m wondering how you get such a smooth finish on ply.

Great looking bowl Sam, like every one else I would love to know how you set up the plyboard.
Not pointy enough to be Madonna but just as nice.

That’s a very pretty bowl and I really do love the way the plywood worked out.
