These bowls are about 9” in diameter andf about 3” high. Two blanks were made one with Bloodwood strips and Satinwood major pieces, and the other blank the opposite use of wood. They were cut on the bandsaw and the corresponding segments from each blank glued together to give a complete level. I put them together two different ways to give two different bowls. I wasn’t sure which I would like best, but I have a favorite. I would appreciate knowing yours.

Very nice creative work. I prefer the less busy one, which is the main picture shown. You have a lot of patience to do work like this. It would drive me insane. Thank you for sharing.

Very nice choice of woods…great color and contrasts. Both of them are very nice…I’d have to say I like the simple one slightly better…I don’t know exactly why.

It’s hard to choose they both look great. But if I have to choose I would pick the one that’s in the main photo with alternating strips .

These are some great bowls. My favorite is the one with the alternating stripes, but only by a hair.

Very nice bowls I really like the contrast of the two woods. I have to say I like the one with alternating stripes, they are both beautiful!

Thanks for sharing~

I say the first one hands down. It’s a piece that non-wood-workers would have a tough time wrapping their heads around, highly intriguing.

How can you pick a favorite child, but if I have to choose then I choose picture #3. Outstanding job and creativity.

Nice job
