I do a little turning now and then. I’m limited somewhat because I only have a midi lathe with a maximum working capacity of 10”. I’m lucky to belong to the Brandon (Fl.) woodworkers club with a lot of members who do some very fine turnings, and more than willing to share their knowledge. I’ve advanced enough to have completed a “dizzy bowl” ( 4th & 5th pics). I think that’s what it’s called because you’re get dizzy if you tried to count the pieces. I viewed the videos on “youtube videos to get me started. #1,4,5, and 6 are showing how to, from the title ” bowl from a board”. The dizzy Bowl has that name for a title. The videos are a step by step tutorial that aren’t too complicated. The walnut, maple bowl is achieved by taking 1 square walnut board and 1 same size maple board. Determine how many sections you want for the plate, and use a piece of cardboard cut to the curvature you like. You will need to cut both boards taped together on the bandsaw into a circle. mark the maple board which is then placed on top of the walnut board. Mark how many swirls you want and make sure they are evenly spaced. This is IMPORTANT. Number each swirl as it is cut from the full circle. Both walnut and maple from the first cut are #1, next cut is #2. This will give you 2 plates when you are finished. The first plate will start with a maple strip, on the second plate, the first strip again marked #1 will be a walnut strip. When you alternate the 2 colors to glue they should fit perfectly together. Easy peasy.
