This was a relatively simple project, just took patience and careful laminating to ensure the lines and corners were clean. Walnut and Ambrosia Maple made for an inexpensive bowl with nice contrast.

Side view included
For a finish, I simply used Myland’s High Build Friction Polish.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Interesting pattern of squares in the round.
My first thought was how careful you have to be to keep everything centered. You came pretty close.

awesome bowls. i like the fact that you have your own designs, and are not trying to emulate a generic design idea, as you so often see.
