These four bowls were made using the bowl from a board method. The rings were cut on a scrollsaw then glued together. The rough bowl blank was then turned on a lathe.
Constructed of Black Cherry, Silver Maple and PVA glue. Finished with salad bowl finish.
Questions and comments welcome.

Very nice ! I like the color of that Black Cherry. The layers really blend well too. Is the interlocking between the cherry and the maple done with a router bit setup before the rings are cut ?

The way you maintained the continuity of the dark inclusion despite pattern stepping in the first bowl is impressive. The patterns are good too. Splendid bowls.

At first glance I thought they were finger joint joins, but no that would be too easy for you, you had to do
a reverse dovetail joint to make it even harder. Great looking joints and they make the bowls look good. As
soon as I finish playing with my deck, I am going to have to get back to my lathe. Thank you for sharing.

MonteCristo, I did make the joints before the rings were cut.

BritBoxmaker, I got lucky with the continuity of the dark inclusion. They normally come out looking like the right side of the bowl in pic 1 and not nice and straight like on the left.

Bluepine38, they are almost finger joints. I used a glue lock router bit to make the joints.
