This bowl is about 9.25” in diameter and stands a little over 5” tall. The feature ring has 6 panels made up of book-matched Cherry diamonds in a book-matched field of Monterillo, separated by Canarywood staves.

The base is Mahogony, the next level is Australian Blackwood and Canarywood, and the third level is Padauk and Canarywood.

Finish is Tung Oil

Nice, but how did you make the diamonds?

I ripped strips of Monterillo and Cherry at an angle without changing the blade angle in between. Glue together lenghwise with the cut angles together. Trim to get a cross-section that will provide a quarter of a diamond attached to the Monterillo. Cross-cut and bookmatch four of these segments to give the full diamond in the field of Monterillo.
