No, It’s the same bowl. I made it from mahogany. It is just 4 discs cut from a board with the first three layers having the grain aligned, and the top disc grain turned 90degrees.

On the first and second bowsl I used gloss polyurethane, on the second bowl (large walnut) I used semi-gloss lacquer, and on the fourth and fourth and fifth I used gloss lacquer
(I have been looking to see the difference in thee appearances)
