Seeing bluepine38’s post today reminded me I have some similar bowls to post.
I made some random cutting boards and cut them into rings on the scrollsaw instead of using a ringmaster.
Each bowl is made up of 1 ring from each “cutting board”. I was going for a random look.
Here is a blog that shows a simple bowl made with this process: http://lumberjocks.com/SASmith/blog/20704
Bowls are 15” in diameter and are made of sassafras, walnut, silver maple, spalted birch, cherry, ambrosia maple and red oak. All scrap.
Thanks for looking

Very nice bowl
I guess I do mine the hard way, By turning them, however, I think I will have to try your way.

Hey Arlin. They are turned, but only around a 1/4” from each side is removed when finished.

Your bowls always look just a little better than mine, must be that extra touch of craftsmanship. Mixing
those extra types of wood gives a lot better contrast. Thank you for sharing.

The bowl is beautiful. I really like the concept of forming the layer, cutting the rings, gluing up, and turning!
