This is a wooden bowl I made for Betty for Christmas 2002. It is to hold the wooden fruit that you see in the first picture. It is made from a glue up of maple and walnut woods and "turned" on a Lathe.

This next bowl is done in a segmented glue up. It is made up of 49 pieces of wood cut precisely to size and glued together to form rings. There are two layers of segmented rings (24 pieces each) glued together and then glued to the base. The base is solid purpleheart wood and the rings are alternating maple and purpleheart.

The first three pictures show the glue up before it has been turned and the last three pictures show the finished bowl. It has 5 coats of a clear water base urethane finish.
This was made for Betty's Mum for Christmas 2004.
