For these bowls I raided my cutoff pile looking for anything 1” wide, 14” long and any thickness.
I made four 14” laminated “cutting board” blanks consisting of silver maple, sassafras, catalpa, cherry, walnut, sycamore and ash left over from other projects. I then cut three beveled rings from each blank. When I glued the bowls together I used one piece from each blank to give the bowls a random look.
Finished with tung oil and completed just in time for Christmas.

Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas.

Those are very lively. The many colors of the different wood is striking

I like them a lot.
