No I did not take any pictures of the build. I have done them two ways. The first ones I did I cut on the scroll saw. This one I cut out on my laser. Both ways have some issues. I don’t use a scroll saw a lot so my circles on the scroll saw while they were ok were not great. On the laser I get perfect circles but it burns the outer layer so it requires a good sanding on the spindle sander to remove it and which changes the diameter a bit so you need to account for it. The outer stairs are two identical pieces that are half lapped at the center to form the X pattern.

Here is a Purpleheart and Maple one done on the scroll saw

Scroll saw. Of course. I sold mine when I got out of building remote control airplanes. That is really cool looking bowl. Laser… I had no idea that it could cut something that thick.
Nice Job!

Great design! I’d love to make some of these for gifts. Did you just glue the rings to the base or use some sort of fastener?

The rings are just glued to the base. I make the rings to fit fairly tight so they have bond on both the bottom and side.
