Here is my first attempt at doing a feature ring in a bowl using an inspired Indian Basket design. The design is called a running arrow. If you pick out a color, notice that it will form an arrow running to the right merging into another arrow. If each project teaches you something – then I learned alot from this project. I learned that there is a easier way to build this without the tiedious individual tile glueing that I worked through. Still it was fun and inspiring. The bowl is made from a Maple bottom blank, maple sigments, Wenge accent strips, tiles of Yellow Heart, Walnut and Paduke and a tope ring of marble wood. I have 277 individual pieces in the bowl. I finished it with sand paper up to a 1500 grit and coated the bowl with General Finishes Salad bowl finish. My wife saw this and wanted it – I was going to try and sell it. However, I guess it stays in our home. The bowl is approx. 11 inches wide by approx. 6 inches deep.
