Pics 1 and 2 are of a 10” maple bowl with cherry stripes.
Pics 3 and 4 are ~12” in diameter. maple and saffafras cut on the bandsaw using the stack cut method. I like the grain of the sassafras in pic 3.

therookie here is a link to the bandsaw bowl method. I used a scroll saw but you could do it on a bandsaw if you do the bowl in two halves.
hasbeen I will find you a link to the stack and cut method.

hasbeen here is the link to a blog that shows the stack and cut method. a different pattern but you will get the idea. I’m sure there are other blogs that show it here also but poroskywood just came to mind.

Just had a look at your bowls Sasmith. Bluepine38 alerted me to your work after I had posted my scroll sawn bowls yesterday. Yours are truly inspiring.
Thanks for posting
