This bowl inspired by the Navajo Tribe has 969 pieces of Figured Maple and Walnut. The center ring which may be difficult to see by the picture is of PurpleHeart and Walnut, to mimic the center PurpleHeart cross of each segment. The rings were assembled on the lathe. I originally made a bottom that had a lot of color and inlay, but choose not to use it because it made the piece to weird. I finally decided on a simple alternating Walnut & Maple bottom. This is my 110th piece since starting woodworking just over a year ago. I’ve been asked to set up a booth in vendors row at the District Rally (for Motorcycling) Serving the state of Arizona in Tucson. See ya there!
