I decided to try a segmented bowl with a feature ring of Baltic Birch Plywood just to see what it would look like. While not fantastic, it did turn out ok – I think next time I’ll use a staggered pattern of the Baltic Birch in an indian basket pattern. Bowl is made of Manzanta wood, Oak, Birch, Apricot and Maple and local American Walnut, besides the Baltic Birch. Total of 60 segments plus the solid maple bottom. One of the things I notice after I took the pictures was that the rubbing compond I used was white and you can see it in the picture in some of the grain. I then went back and rubbed the bowl with mineral spirts and wiped it clean which removed all of that then gave it one final coat of General Finishes, Salad bowl finish.
