When you are dealt a bunch of Lemons – you make Lemon aide – which is what I named this bowl. It started as a different project – but when I screwed up the turning – I thinned the bottom of the feature ring too much – and it broke through. So at the suggestion of my wife – I sanded back the thin bottom using my drum sander, so that I would have a thicker wall, re-glued it to a couple of new rings and sort of saved a project and a lot of work. The bottom is done as a medallion on Baltic Birch, the rest is Mesquite, yellow heart, blood wood, maple, and a small amount of Ebony. First one that I used the Stomper on. Bowl is approx.. 8 inches dia by 3 ½ inches high. Yes I know the bottom is not tapered properly but that was an issue of the sharp curve of the feature ring and trying to keep the medallion bottom . Like all projects – it was a learning experience.
