This is a bowl I made from various wood that I laminated into a blank and the turned into a bowl. I corded the bowl blank out and used it for the top after I added a maple rim to it.

The turning and sanding of this was a little different than a single type of wood as some wood was harder than others.

The style I was going for was an ” Asia” look. Some tell me that it also has an ” Africa ” look. Not sure which fits it’s style best.

The underside of the bowl rim I had to turn using a hollowing tool on the backside of the lathe. It would have been nice to have a remote start/ stop switch when working on that side as the controls on my Powermatic were difficult to reach.

Very nice! I love all the different woods. I would say that it has more of a UFO look to it but you may not want to hear that. I was hoping to see some chocolate chip cookies hidden under that lid! :)

That is a beautiful piece Mark. No question about it. I don’t think I have ever seen so much laminate detail in a turning. Very well done.
I could imagine how many hours you have in the glue up. Just beautiful.
