Three matching bowls

The woods are Mahogany and Tiger Maple. The bowls are about 6” wide and 6” tall. I used wipe on Poly for the finish, then buffed with the three wheel Beal buffing system. These bowls are Ringmaster bowls, made from a single laminated board. They are really fast and fun to make.

Making anything that matches something else is a challenge for some of us. Really nice bowls, Bill!
