Being amazed by Sam Shakouri’s work with plywood I couldn’t resist having a go. For any member who has not seen Sam’s work I recommend they take a look at his photo album.
A couple of days ago this ply wood was on a scrap heap waiting to be burnt, I was at warehouse and spotted the shipping pellets and noticed that the bottom supports were 4”x3”x 4ft length of plywood and after some quick talking I got three of them off and into the car boot. I used the table saw to salvage pieces that were solidly glues getting enough for these two seven inch bowls from one length of ply.
Photos 4,5 and 6 were the first try. 1,2 and 3 have English Elm added. Enjoyed doing these but have the tendency to rush things. Don’t laugh to loud Sam, I will never be a threat.
