Not sure how you cut these, but they’re really cool.

Looks good. I tried making one a few weeks ago and it didn’t go as planned for me so I gave up.
For the other posters asking how, watch this video:http://www.scrollsawer.com/videos/making-beautiful-bowls.html
Basically, you angle your table enough so that when you stack the ring you cut out on top of whats left of the board, it has an overlap of the same thickness of your ring. I was going to try it on the bandsaw as well and just enter from outside of the ring and close the kerf. Might still work.
The technique allows you to make non-circular bowls, which turning does not.

Nice job! Good choice of wood, and good work on the cutting, sanding and finishing.

I see you have had fun with Carole’s book as well. I think I have made about 100 bowls this way. Yours look very nice. Hard to believe a round bowl can come from a flat board so fast. How did you like all the sanding? I use the Jet for sanding and then finished them up with the round ball sander on the drill press.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful work with us.

Very nice. I think I’d be tempted to call some of them “baskets” instead.
