This is a bowl that I promised my wife Kathy, and have been working on in between other projects. There is only three natural woods, Cherry, Curly Maple, and Bubinga., the rest of the woods, came from salvaged cabinets, and flooring display boards, and had some really hard plywood, and Formica strips, making it very hard to turn, and a lot of constant chisel sharpening. There is 375 individual pieces in all, and I used 12 segments at 15 degrees. the top ring is made from Bubinga, and has 36 segments, at 5 degrees. The bowl measures 11 1/2” in diameter, and 5” deep. It was finished with 4 coats of hand rubbed BLO, and two top coats of WOP.
