These two segmented plywood with red gum spacers bowls are identical except for the bases and have been finished with coats of Gloss Polyurethane.
Pictures 1 and 2 are of the bowl I have recessed to make it look like weave but hard to see in the photos.
Pictures 3 and 4 are of the bowl un- tampered with.
One bowl is a gift for the cabinet maker who supplies me with high grade plywood offcuts.

Very nice. Plywood really pops in a segmented turning. I’ve been meaning to try a segmented piece with plywood but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Great Work.

Thanks for the comments. I’m just learning to appreciate the beauty of ply, specially bringing the pattern out in the segments.

It was on pics 3 & 4 that the word Basketweave first entered my mind. These are wonderful. And wondrous.
