Laminated Bowl

This is a bowl I made by laminating together maple, walnut, padauk, and hard curly pear, with a segmented ring of cherry for the rim. Having my new Jet drum sander made it very easy to get super flat and smooth surfaces for gluing up the pieces. Finished size is 9 1/4” wide and 3 1/2” tall. It is finished with three coats of clear brushing lacquer.

As usual, there are several things I will do differently next time, but overall I’m happy with the final project.

Next attempt will include more segmented layers.

Nice bowl Ron! I like curly pear grain and the cherry rim a lot. We’ll have to get together and make some shavings together soon.

Great looking bowl. Turning sure is addictive :-) I like your wood combinations.
