This double layered bowl is simillar to the previous one but with one step up. Dots from timber of the outer layer are added to the inner layer and dots from inner layer timber are added to the outer layer. The red outer layer is padouk and the whitish inner layer is jellutons which is mainly used for carving.
The gages in photo #5 were used to insure the two parts precisely touching each other without any void and to avoid crossing the gluing line during turning process.
Also, I did not have solid blanks for this bowl, I segmented them, each part is made of sixty pieces, dots are not included.
These projects of doubl layered bowls were clearly all about challenging myself. They consumed alot of timber and time, and in the end of the day I turned a bowl or two which I may never use, but I enjoyed every minute in turning them.
