    Economy oak bowl

    You can see this bowl being made at http://dennyedwards.com. Let me know what you think - good or bad.

    It is a very nice bowl, the open segmented ring near the top adds a lot.

    Well you asked, I think it is beautiful. I like the wood, the shape, the segmenting and the finish. Very nice work.

    Nice bowl, the segmented ring is cool.

    Very nice

    What makes it "economy?" Is it made from a flat board cut as concentric slope side circles?

    The segmenting is neat, but as I looked I had an idea that it might be consecutive rings glued together, then one of the rings cut with a tablesaw or something, to avoid the hassle of positioning the open segments. Did you use any special trick, such as that?

    looks like a valid bowl to me... must be art though, since it 'won't hold water' good job!

    Very nice, Dennis. Kind of messy as a punch bowl, but it'd handle popcorn just fine.

    You asked for opinion.
    1) It is beautiful.
    2) It must have been quite difficult to make.
    3) It will be a difficult item to keep dusted/polished.
    4) I would love to own it.

    Enjoy,

    Jim
