This piece which is made from maple, sapele, and yellow Heart which I named “Direction”, became a fun project of challenge for me, definitely tested my patience, but very rewarding after the last piece was fitted to close the ends. I used 5 bowls at 11” by 6” to construct the brick lay look of the bowls, once the bowls had the right slope and shaped to the thicness of 3/8 I then cut the bowls in halfs and quarters to come up with a directional flow of design, to complete the project I used a wipe on finish.

This is really a nice piece.
Lots of precision and lots of thought went into it and the result is just very cool.
Great idea and excellent execution.

I’m glad you showed the method because I was wondering… “how in the helium balloon did he do that?” I bet that took a while! Looks great!
