That is really interesting, but I have no idea of how you did that on a lathe. Is there a video somewhere that shows this?

Thanks for posting, for me it’s all about learning new things….

Steven this was turned as a normal bowl and cut in half vertically down the middle then the 2 halves glue back together at what would have been the lips of the original bowl thus forming the elliptical bowl. Hope this helps with the understanding how it was made.

Stunning piece and so simple once you explain the construction! You certainly have some beautiful woods to work with over there!
Welcome to Lumberjocks! Looking forward to your future projects!!
