Absolutely love these. Beautiful work with beautiful wood. I have a standing order for some Zebrano and your bowls reinforce why I want it.

Branch, what a great idea, I have seen lots of bowls made from planks with a Ring Master lathe, but these are quite different.
You have done a great job aligning the grain and achieved a specky result.
Thanks for showing.

super nice bowls from a board . the zebra wood sure makes these stand out & the square edges give them a totally different look. Great bowls!

Very nice looking bowls, I like that layered look. I hope you did not get your knuckles hit when you were
turning and sanding these wonderful bowls, and i imagine you miss that nice helicopter sound you get when
you turn this type of winged bowl. Thank you for sharing.

Nice going Branch. I made up a steel jig for cutting rings on my mini lathe at 45 degrees. It was kind of
successful but it seemed to be hard on the motor.
What method did you use?
