I used two maple blanks and Y. hart, R. hart, P. hart, padduck, and walnut for the dots. It’s about 9” x 5” deep. This is the sixth bowl I have turned. I am having so much fun.

Looks great. Turning is addictive, so enjoy.

Lots of character in this turning. The dots are fantastic! Would love to know how you did them.

Keep it up.

Sorry it took so long to get back to yall.
I used a 5/8 plugcutter to get the dots. I shape the outside of the bowl just enough to get the form I liked. Then inserted the plugs and shaped it more. Yall may remenber those white bowls that had the red dots from the 60’s. I always loved those bowls.
