Topic tags/keywords: question

A few years ago, I tutored an older german woman on using a computer. She wasn’t very interested though, and we spent most of the time discussing the many collectibles and antiques from around the world in her home. She wanted me to pick something out as a gift, and this caught my eye. I probably could have found something much more valuable ;), but I thought this was very cool and unique. She told me her son made this. At first I thought it was carved from a single chunk of wood, but upon further thought, and doing some woodworking, I realized it was likely laminated plywood. And then carved? Turned? What do you think?

Maybe the maker is a LJ?

it’s not made in one piece and actually an easy piece to make carved and sanded mostly. Alistair ps and of course glued where apropriate on the obvious join.

perhaps it was cut/carved while flat, then steamed and bent to shape? Final rounding and contouring then done on the bent piece?

I think the blank was made using a combination of
bent lamination and stacked plywood.
