That is a very cool design. That is one heck of a lot of work. It looks to be about 10” deep? Is that right?
Thanks for sharing!...............Jim

Bob Collins got me to thinking about trying this with his carved bowls, but you have really moved the
challenge bar up a few notches, very beautiful result and worth all the work for all of us slightly warped
people that think a wood workshop is just an wonderful place to play. Thank you for sharing your fun
with us.
