13" Black Walnut and Curly Maple Striped Bowl


This unique bowl is actually turned from a single board that was created by ripping a maple board and a walnut board into strips and reassembling them into an alternating pattern. Rings where then cut from this maple-walnut board and glued into a bowl shape that was then turned to its final form. The end result is a distinctive stripe effect where each stripe flows into the form the bowl and provides considerable visual interest. Normally, bowls constructed with this technique have straight sides, but I prefer to turn them with a subtle, but distinct, parabolic curve from the base to the rim which produces a much more elegant form. The bottom of the bowl has been decorated with a textured ring and inside of several concentric groves as proof that it was turned with as much care and attention as the rest of the bowl. Finished with several coats of danish oil and polished to a pleasant silky sheen, this bowl is as nice to hold as it is to look at.
