Here is a small bowl (approx. 4” in dia.) made from a laminated blank I purchased. The woods were not identified in the blank but it looks like yellowheart, bloodwood (or maybe bubinga), possibly oak and then walnut at the center.
I enjoy detailing the bottom even though it may not be seen by the casual observer. I think that is a holdover from my time as a kick-wheel potter. At craft fairs when looking at the pottery I will often examine the bottoms because you can easily tell the true crafts people.
My goal is to work up to laminated bowls but I would hate to do an elaborate glue up just to ruin the piece through lack of experience.
