Brazillian Cherry bowl with decorative sand inlay

The three pieces of wood were glued with Original Gorilla Glue

Polish was EEE UltraShine and then I sanded it off and sprayed it with gloss

The inlay was made with 25% white and 75% terracotta decorative sand inlayed with CA glue. It was turned down using chisels after many sharpenings

Yes, the sand is hard on the tools, but you have a lovely bowl as a result! Is the sand all the way through the bowl?

The cherry pieces were glued together and turned down to near finished size and then I used a parting tool to make a 1/4” deep channel for the inlay. Hollowing the bowl was 99% wood and just a little work to get the inside of the inlay finished.

Beautiful Bowl, Nice work with the sand inlay.

Nice! The sand inlay looks wonderful in a subdued sort of way.

Creative thinking! Normaly you keep sand as far as possible from your iron tools.
This beautyfull bowl inspires to explore new ways.

I like the way you turned the inside so you can see the inlay. Very creative.

Have your say...
