Both of these small bowls are roughly 6×3in and are made from broom handle, jarrah dowell and an unknown timber and the body is from Queensland Box. Q box was used for flooring in the past so is a fairly strong timber.
I marked out the circles and divided them appropriately and drilled holes to accept the different sized dowells. Then they were glued in, making sure that there is plenty of glue for a secure bond. The first one I made had some tearing along the dowell edges.
Finished to 400 grit and polished with Shellawax Glow.

Thanks for looking.
C&C welcome.

Bob.

No question about it! Your bowels are truly beautiful and they are very interesting! I love the way they look.
Excellent Idea!
