I was using this as a trial bowl to make something larger in the future. I had a scrap block of beech and a little bit of fir that I liked the grain of. I cut the block on a diagonal and then glued the fir in the middle like a sandwich to get the angle. The shape and direction of the grain was fixed by the starting block so it runs at an angle to the points. Comments would be welcomed.

Very nice. The different grain patterns gives it a nice touch.

You have created a wonderful grained bowl. It is fun to come up with different grain designs. Nice work.

A very interesting shape – really nice! I like it.

For me, I would not include the angled accent strip on this piece. The two features seem to compete rather than compliment. Just my $0.02…

I love this bowl. Pattern wood grain is beautiful. A good idea this diagonally sandwich.

Thanks for sharing.
