This is another of my early efforts at bowl making. The outward turning lip makes the bowl look larger than it is, and the contrasting wood of the spindle adds visual interest. The bowl base is lacewood and the spindle is bloodwood. The spindle is attached with a hidden dowel for strength. It was also a way to practice spindle work and bowl making simultaneously.
There was a practical reason to use a different wood for the spindle – I was able to get more height to the piece than is possible from a 2×5” square blank.
This piece can find use as a small snack bowl or the inevitable knick-knact collector.
