Two lighting options so you can see the whole piece.
I couldn’t tell you what wood that is. The 1/4 inch pieces are maple, padauk, and walnut. The lid is box elder.
The finial is a tiger-eye finial sold for lamps. Makes a great handle.
At first I was going to keep adding height to this bowl and finally make it a vase, but that’s for another day. This was made by gluing up a couple pieces and turning them, then gluing on another board and turning it, and so on, so you can make as big a hollow object as you want.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Stumpy, I’m not all that impressed with my photo’s but I was too lazy to take out the big camera.

That is cool. Sounds like pretty much the same process as making a vessel with the Ringmaster, a ring at a time. Good looking project.
