Beautiful work. I think the different wood go together very well.

Thank you for all the comments.
@Loucarb: I am trying to get some form from this style of bowl, but it can be tough with only a 3/4” thick blank.

Scott they are really nice, I love the waves on the one, amazing how the wood comes alive like this.
