I was experimenting while trying a technique I saw Mike Peace do where he turned a bowl using a 4”x10” piece of wood and while shaping the flat “bowl” a small rounded ridge formed that looked just a like a ripple in water so I decided to finish the entire surface with ripples to make it look like water drops caused the ripples. I decided to try this with a bowl to make a ring holder and this is the result. These are made from Bradford pear I have had laying around for a while. Finished with Howard’s Feed and Wax.

Nathan, these are beautiful! I can’t say which is my favorite. The texture you added on the bottom of the squarish platter is an unexpected treat. The ring bowls may be on my list of things to try soon! Thanks for sharing!
