I have much pleasure in presenting my first bowl.
Its constructed from a variety of timbers and some synthetic material

The real answer is now revealed
The lumber starting at the top dark is walnut, then butternut, tinted resin, cherry, butternut, cherry, resin, butternut and walnut in the center

I cannot tell you the construction method apart from it was made by Recycle1943 Dick Byrd Ohio and possibly by his ringmaster.

I can say we are very pleased with it and it will have pride of place in our home .

You know the saying “watch the dickie bird.

I took another picture that now acknowledges the maker. and Well I was going to take more pictures of the construction but I couldnt get the dickie bird in my camera to work.

Whats with all the deceptive carry on?, well Dick suggested I post it as a project however I really couldnt do that unless the credit for the excellent work was acknowledged to the correct person.

Present accepted with humility and utmost gratitude!

I will avoid the guts in this conversation (indigestible long story if you came in late).

How is this possible? Your first bowl? The first bowl you’ve turned? Or, your first segmented bowl? In either case, it’s otherworldly. Out of this world. Unbelievable. And, what’s up with the package on the table? Please to ‘splain. I’m all a-dither, over here.

It’s a great looking bowl but I’m guessing that package on the table is a dead giveaway as to how you obtained this nice bowl. I may be wrong and I hope I am but I only say this because you have no build photos and you are not naming the woods and you don’t know the construction method…. So it’s your turn now Rob! LOL!
Anyway I’m just playing with you! Tell us more!

OK some feedback

LBD: Correct it was a present.

Ivan: The credit for the production should rightly be directed to recycle1943

Mark: Now you know how its all possible, I sent you a PM so you would not be too concerned.

Peteybadboy: well spotted

Dave: yes agree its a very nice bowl however the only work I did was to unpack it.

Dick: Again thanks heaps its something I could never do to that level of professionalisn.

Tony: There is no trying to pull a shifty with you, ... Your 100% correct,... all is now revealed. There is no way possible I could even match the build!!

Lucky you disclosed the contents of that box in time… I hear the sniffer dogs had the Federal Police treading on petunias in your neighbourhood.

Those Bowls travel so well, and generously have a way of making trips all around the world.

Don’t want to be a stick in the mud… but if rc (or Aurora or Mrs. Antman) placed it upside down… that description would confuse the heck out of seasoned woodworkers and have them running for their fauna dictionaries.
