Here is a bowl I created following my previous Indian Spirits bowl. The feature ring sort of reminds me of nautical flags hence I named it Semaphore. The bowl is approx. 7 in. by 5 inches, constructed of Mesquite as the base wood, with bloodwood, wenge, Ebony, Holly, yellowheart, maple for the feature ring. The bowl has a floating bottom. I used a piece of Pheasant wood that I recently acquired while on a trip to Hawaii. As always, comments are appreicated.
