I have been doing segmented bowl work for a couple of months and giving the bowls away to friends when my daughter complained that I hadn’t made one for her. So I acquired some very beautiful Apricot wood from a local farmer here in Brentwood which I cut and dried over the summer. My body of the bowl is apricot, and the ring is Walnut. I bottomed the bowl with a nice piece of black walnut and then added a feature inlay I got from Rockler. Bowl was finished with Salad Bowl finish from General Finishes. This was my first attempt at adding an inlay – sort of got away from me at first so to cover up part of my over cut – I added two burn lines which helped to clean up the inlay and add some charter to the bowl.
