Another Ringmaster bowl. This one is Maple and Cherry. I noticed after the glue dried, that I had a couple of the rings misaligned, but it looks pretty decent. The finish is three coats of General Finishes rub on Oil & Urethane and hand rubbed Renaissance Wax. Thanks for looking – one of these days maybe I’ll get to post one of those off the charts projects that we see so often here.

Fill that up with popcorn or chips and the misalignments go away!!

That’s a fine looking bowl.

I like the cherry/maple combo. It is more difficult to align this style of bowl than most people think.
I have made a bowl very similar to this:

Thanks for posting it.

Nice job, Cajun. what is that in the bottom center? I’ve heard of some people putting in a nice new shiny penny as a way of dating and finishing their turnings- but this looks different.

Donna you are very observant. The shiny thing in the middle of the bottom is a Medallion with “Handcrafted by Bill Neupert, Metairie, LA” I ordered several hundred a couple of years ago from The Wooden Post – Gary Neely owned it back then – there is a new owner now. The medallion is sized so that you just use a 1” Forestner bit and drill down about a 1/16” – glue in with CA glue and you have your project identified.
