This is a bowl that I used both my Ringmaster and my Lathe to complete. I don’t know what type of wood this is, but I suspect it is some sort of pine as it is light and soft. I cut the rings with my Ringmaster, then mounted the glued up bowl to my Lathe and turned it smooth, sanded it. I used spray lacquer for the finish, used 2 coats, but I am going to add several more coats to deepen the shine.

Very nice and a quite unique bowl. If I were to try that it would be listed under “abstract” woodworking! You did a really good job on this.

Nice job. The grain structure of the wood really stands out.

Using a variety of wood combinations really make for a unique end product. Super job Bill.
