This is inspired by the bowl Andy Coates had published in “Woodturning” issue 326. Thanks for the inspiration Andy.
Mine is a bit different though, because I hate to copy other peoples work.
The bowl is made from “McIntosh Apple” and the rings are Tasmanian Myrtle burl, I chose the burl wood because it matches both dark and lighter apple wood.
It is sanded to 400 and waxed with beeswax made in Kalbarri. This is the first time I’ve used beeswax and I missed a couple of little patches so will have to do it again.
The bowl is 180mm diameter and 75mm tall, the rings are 60mm x 10mm.
I especially left the rough edge to make it look like an added piece.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.

Bob.

I like it very much, Honorable Bob. Especially the appearance of an iron band that, I guess, is what you mean by “added on.” It looks to me like a bowl nested in an iron band. Like, if it were really huge – huge enough to require three men to carry it by the three rings. Which is the only reason I can imagine a wooden bowl would be nested in an iron band, with three rings. There. I’m done.

A great looking bowl Bob, something different. I am still trying to work out how the rings go through the add ons.
Sorry I missed your last project, a nice save from the dump. Lovely work on both.

Hi Bob,
The lugs are part of the bowl, the rings have been split and reglued.

Hi Mark, That band was supposed to be sanded off but it really looked like a band to carry the bow so I left it onl.
Spot on Buddy.

Wow! What a great looking bowl Bob! Love the rings! But like Bob Collins I to was trying to work out how you got the rings in there. So you split the rings I see …. What no magic! LOL! Very nice work Bob!

As I look at this beautiful Bob I see the rings are something of a distinct feature. It make it stand out a lot. I may some day have to try this. Well done Bob.
