Very nice bowl. Is it a trick of the light or is the bottom really thick?

Nice bowl, sure wish that you would give us a little more info on the woods used, process for creating, etc. It looks like a Ringmaster or Scrollsaw bowl, is it?

Thank you everyone ,the wood i used was Spanish cedar a thin strip of red wood ,cypress ,and red cedar in the middle.It is done on the scroll saw, the finished board is about 12 inches by 12 inches and 3/4’s thick,so the bottom is 3/4’s compass want open up no more than 11 and 1/4 , so that is how wide the bowl is .i draw 1/4 inch circles .i make too marks on the edge of the board 1/4 inch apart top to bottom then put the marks against the blade of your scroll saw tilt the table till the bottom left and the top right match up ,are vice verse to cut the other direction that gives your angle to cut ,once cut use a sanding block lightly on the bottom of the rings then glue two rings together i have two pieces of plywood with all-thread bolts in the corner stop nuts on the bottom and wing nuts on the top and washers of course,put the bottom on last so you can sand the inside first .
