This bowl is as larg as my lathe can turn, 285mm in diameter and made entirely of plywoob. All pieces were 300×130 x 20 mm when I bought them for only $2. I glued them 30 degrees leaning on each other, as in photo # 5. I nailed them in the corners during gluing to privent escaping the presure. I added a rim of 12 segments vertically laminated plywood. I inserted a flat 120mm in diameter plywood disc with a 65mm in dia. hole in the bottom to be a recess, otherwise the end plys were too soft to mount it on the chuck, photo #3.
NOT bad for $2 material, isn’t it?
