hi fellow LJ HAVING been posting in a while thought i would give you all a break from seeing my bowls all the time
but i have made a few new with a 5 pointed star in the bottom and i thought i would share them with you
i had a little bit off a struggle with this design but it was great fun trying to get it the way i wanted it to look i used a lot off scrap wood first to practice the angels and get them nice and tight the stove got a lot of glued up star wood and it keep me nice and warm as i was having fun

the bowl is 14 inches at the rim it is 7 inch at the base and stands 4 3/4 inch high
the are 166 pieces in it
the wood is purpleheart maple Wenge and goncalves
finish is sand and seal lacquer and beeswax and buffed

As always your work is just beautiful. I still wish I lived close to you so I could buy a bowl or two.
