Turned this bowl about a month ago with some scraps of Walnut, Maple and Burmese Blackwood.

Look’s great. From scraps to a handy useful bowl. Nice one.

I absolutely adore this… it’s so simple, but really elegant. I’m wondering, for the top “lip”, did you glue an entire panel to it or did you somehow salvage some of the interior of it?

Thanks for the comments.

The lip around the top was actually actually a long thin strip back wood that I cut into 4 pieces and glued in a diamond pattern to the top of the laminated block. The pieces were just wide enough to allow me to create the correct diameter and thickness of the bowl. – John

What a great job… I would seriously consider buying this from you… what do you want? $500-600?
Drop me a note and we can set up the purchase. ;-)

it’s unusual,; the strip almost looks like it’s jumping out fro the surfaces of the bowl. nice work.

I’m a big fan of contrast and this realy, really works! I’m not much of a turner but I can appreciate the effort that went into this. Super!

Do you have any problem with splitting of the bowl with cross grain laminations?
