Well I took a look at some of Ray Allens work on Indian basket designs and decided to give it a try. Here is my first attempt at on of his designs. Ray Allen normally made vessels but I tried to do this as a functional bowl. Bowl is made of about 300 pieces using maple, purple heart, yellow heart, and Wenge. I still need to work on my glue lines since they are somewhat showing but in light colored wood – it’s difficult. Each bowl is a learning expierence.
