This bowl was made from curly maple and walnut. It is made from 30 pieces of wood, is 2 1/4” high and 8” in diameter. After I turned the bowl, I took it to the bandsaw and then the drum sander to create the detail in the top.

Very nice! Did you hold the bowl at an angle by hand and feed into the bandsaw? Tricky. Very nice effect, though, and your lamination with the walnut in it is superb.

Very unique bowel, very nice! It looks more like a sea shell to me, but I can see the flower resemblance.

Very nice work. I like the way you did the bottom to also be walnut.
