A nice little piece of walnut and some scraps of Koa I brought back from Kaua’i led me down the path to anorther bowl with grapes. I also used the Koa to create a contrasting rim with some interest. The Koa has wonderful highlights and plays well with the walnut. The bowl is about 5.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall, with a foot covered in soft tan leather. The vines are oak and the grapes are koa plugs, cut from thin stock and inserted in three layers.

The process is a lengthy because of the many glue-ups…...two for the vines, one for the foot and one for the rim. Then the lathe and then 3 seperate layers of grapes with turning between each layer,.....and finally the sanding and finishiing…...makes me tired thinking about it.

WOW very nice… if you didn’t have the upside down photo, I would have thought it was a platter.

Have your say...
