I made this segmented bowl for my brother-in-law, and his wife, for their upcoming 25th Anniversary. There are only 5 segments per ring at 36 degrees. There are 5 thunder birds with 5 pieces each for a total of 25 pieces, hence, 25th anniv.. The top ring has 25 alternating walnut and cherry pieces. The top is made from solid walnut with a finial made from some leftover glue ups. The inside of the top has a penny embedded in it wit the date year that they were married. The bowl is made from Light Cherry with Bubinga Thunder Birds. The bowl is 7 inches wide X 4 1/2 inches deep. Finish is lacquer. I borrowed the Thunder bird design from fellow Lj, Bill Bullock from a few years back. Thanks Bill.

What a beautiful piece! You brother-in-law, and his wife are lucky people to have such a great craftsman in the family. I love the look with the Thunderbirds and that penny in the lid is a nice touch! I’m sure they will love it.
Nice work Don!
