When I decide to make’em I usually make a dozen or so while I’m at it. It takes about 3 weeks of planning and glueing but the end result is always worth it.
enjoy

- peterford

there’s a mixture of maple, walnut, poplar, honey locust, cedar, butternut and in the third pictured bowl is a single strip of red wood.
I’m dissapointed in the pictures because in the 4th pictured bowl the lighter colored wood is actually green poplar. It really looks good against the other woods.

Nice work, these are some interesting and intricate designs. I would like to see a video on how you created the double cross over each other arches, like in picture number 2, can’t seem to wrap my head around the process to produce these. Do you know of any YouTube videos showing the method?

Great work.

Sorry, no video that I know of. It’s all my fault and my ringmaster

Love the work you do. I don’t plan, just start working, maybe I should do more planning and end up with a fantastic project like yours.
