These are actually just test or practice pieces … the two were constructed out of a single set of 3/4” rings, split in half on the bandsaw. Each is about 2-3/4” high and 3-1/2” in diameter. The rings are 50/50 maple and black walnut.

The jig is based on one by ThePapa1947 ... here's a link to his YouTube video on the jig.

Gerry the twins look sensational. Very artsy too.

Thanks for the vid link. That “jig” could be used for a lot more than crazy bowls. Can’t remember the times I’ve tried to resaw smalls, and that thing would be the cats meow.

Clean and smooth, I like the shaping and style of those, very southwestern!

Also hard to miss the fine “jiggery” you have going on at the bandsaw 8^) Looks like you are gearing up for a turning marathon, really nice workmanship!
