I designed and turned this african winge bowl few years ago. It is surrounded by closed chain of eight links, four links of osage orange and four of plywood. Observe these links are inside each other (look like) making closed chain around the bowl. Photos # 3 and 4 are close up to show what I mean by closed chain.
SIZE: 260mm. in dia. 72 pieces.
