Another bowl with multi colored Perspex and plywood. Not the best result owing to the gluing problems in winter and old Perspex which tended to chip at the slightest catch. Page 3 of my previous projects show the set up of these bowls and also how they should turn out. I also have the second half of this and will finish it in summer.

Hey Bob this is awesome. Even know I am new at woodturning that must of been super hard to make because of the alternating materials spinning great job you deserve praise for this.

Sure is an attention grabber.
Love it.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

This is a wonderful piece and you’ve done a fine job on it. It must be fascinating to wach you work through one of your pieces.

That’s no bowl, it’s another dimension! Wow, one wild and unique piece you have here.

All I can say is: Fair dinkum, mate! I like the laminate effect with the angled pattern.
