My first double layered bowl was very plain but gave me self confidence to turn second one with reversed dots and the second bowl gave me the idea of reversed rim. Here I am showing you the third one with reversed dots and rim. I used the same gages I cut for #2, so they both came out exactly the same shape. Photo #4 is the fourth and last load of shaving was produced from turning this 190mm dia. bowl.
Regardless to reversed dots and rim, double layered bowl was completely my idea and design. I’m not sure if any other woodturner around the world has done similar one before.
I have enjoyed it, hope you do as well.

Intriguing. So, uh, how did you do it? I’d like to try one myself.

What a great bowl Sam, this is certainly something only you have done. I don’t want to know how, have enough trouble with ordinary turning.

I see it… I have a hard time believing it…

Yet, I SEE it (I think)...

I’ve never seen anything like it done before… but, who am I?!

I’d like to see a little of HOW something like that is done…

Accuracy, in my mind, is at the highest level of importance and execution…
I cannot see such accuracy from any of my techniques.

Sam, thank you for showing us your work.
... are you going to show us how you do it?

Sam, some how I can not see you as lacking in confidence, wondering how long it will take you to do
something maybe, but after looking at your turnings on your site, you do not lack confidence or artistic
skill. Looking at those beautiful shavings that can only be produced by extremely sharp tools, I can see
that I am going to have to spend some more time learning a better sharpening process. I can figure
out how you made the bowl, but I do not yet have the skill to copy your procedure. Thank you for
sharing your work and giving us something to talk to ourselves about as we play with our lathes.

You mean you turned two bowls and fit one into the other? I didn’t know it can be done! Well, duh, you did it! That is one heck of an accomplishment!

Thank you all for your comments and interest in copying this project. In few weeks time I will write a blog about making it. I’m preparing some photos and drawings for that purpose.
