Project Information

In most instances the last thing you want is for all the joints to line up, both for appearance and strength. However, I thought if I used a different number of segments in each level and only lined up one set of opposite joints, the others which would not line up would provide an interesting distribution of joints to be emphasized with a contrasting wood. The body of the bowl is made of Goncalo Alves with Padauk spacers. The base is Zebrawood and the intermediate level is Canarywood with two slivers of Satinwood which show up in person but which I could not capture well in the photographs.

I realized as I was finishing the piece that the somewhat off-color boundary between the Canarywood and the Zebrawood base was caused by light passing through the very thin wall. It seems pretty strong, but I am not likely to put the bowl up for sale. Maybe my wife will use it. Despite that problem I was happy with the concept of increasing segments and will use the idea again.

The bowl is about 9" in diameter and stands about 5" high. The finish is Tung Oil.
