This will be a covered bowl. I first made the bowl and then will make the cover to ensure it fits.
This bowl has two different types of rings; one type of ring is from alder and walnut & the second type of ring is from cherry and maple. The smaller pieces from maple and walnut are wider in the rings as they approach the center but the effect did not turn out that obvious. There is a layer of black veneer between each ring.
Here are some photos from glued rings to finished turning (before sanding).

Comments and critiques are welcome.
I haven’t determine the design for the cover. I’m open to suggestions.
