Here is my latest project. It’s called a Quilted bowl but more like an Indian basket. Got a idea from a book written by Malcolm Tibbetts. Bowl has 811 pieces and is made from Yellow Heart, Purple Heart, Bloodwood, Maple, Peruvian Walnut, and Ebony. Bowl is approx. 8 in. in Dia and 7in. high.

Very nice, great contrasting colors.
I have the same book from Malcolm Tibbetts and his videos. Great information from a wonderful and talented turner.
John, where do you get your ebony? Beautiful wood but so expensive.
Thanks for posting.

Thanks Scott. Ya the bowl was a challenge but a lot of fun to make. Lots of cuts.
Scott, not sure where you are located but I got my last Ebony from McBeath Lumber in Berkeley,Ca

Absolutely beautiful!!!! Very nice work, choice of colors and applying the mechanics of segmented wood turning. I have always believed that segmented turners are from another “place”, don’t know where but out of this world.
