I like it Branch, the different shape, specially the feature band and the base, what are the woods? It’s nice to try something different, to many turners stay to the old styles, forget the golden ratio and do your own thing.
Great bowl mate, everything looks great to me..

Awesome job with the wood combo and putting it all together.

One thing thou is your bowls look kind of boxy instead of round curving.

One good looking bowl! I think it’s fine. Good enough for a fruit bowl!

hi thanks for all your coments and feed back it helps a lot
the woods are purple heart wenge walnut cherry and aroka
eastman that was what i was thinking it looks too much like a box
i just might make a lid for it and make it into a box
what i was trying to get was a African look
thanks again for your input

Hey Branch, great job. Takes a lot of time and patience to create a piece like this. I like the combinations of woods. Look forward to seeing more.
