DOUBLE LAYERED BOWL

This 175mm diameter bowl is red gum from outside and silky oak from inside. The idea was occupying my mind for some time until few days ago when I decided to give it a go. It has consumed two blanks to put inside each other before turning them into one bowl. Photo #6 are the stencils I used to gage and make sure not to go through the gluing line which gose between them, and it shows the thickness of the bowl as well.

You’ve stepped it up here Sam. I have NEVER seen one of these before. This is fantastic. Have you considered a blog showing more of the process?

Very pretty bowl Sam. I love the contrasting colors. Just curious, how did you put the two pieces together?.... Where they turned first then inserted inside one another? Im with rance on this one, give us a short blog, I’d like to try one myself

Great bowl, Sam. Innovative and intriguing.

I’ve had an idea in my mind for some time of a box of this nature and , encouraged by this project, I feel more inclined to follow it up. If it looks half as good as this I’ll be well pleased.

Sam …you’ve left me scratching my head again what a great idea! hope to see it at the next meeting.

I have to agree with Bob Collins, Red gum and Osage orange would look fantastic!

Turn two bowls that nest inside each other so closely that they can be glued together to make one bowl,
no problem if you are Sam Shakouri or own a expensive CNC lathe. Sam, you really are creating wonders
with wood. Thank you for sharing this bowl with us, and now I will quietly go practice on my lathe and
hum my mantra “maybe some day”.

That is some nice work. I can say I would have never come up with something like this. Very impressive indeed.
