This project is 7in high and 10in in diameter,consists of457pieces. It started out by making the diamond centerpiece then wrapping each of the 12 pieces with veneer three times then all cuts were either a 45 or 90 but it still took two days. I then added all the bottom rings and when I did the bottom I took it to the bandsaw and then added veneer into the cuts one at a time then turned.made o purpleheart and maple

YES, it is pleasing to look at it and thinking about all the unlimited possibility that we can create. It is my favorite out of the three.

Hey Glynn. very nice work. the feature ring on the diamond bowl is a bit busy compared to the rest. your attention to detail is right on so is the choice of woods. segmented turning is very time consuming but it sure shows up in the results. keep it up and keep smiling John
