    Plywood with walnut bowl

    Here is my first attempt at gluing plywood to make a bowl(stolen idea from someone on the forum)I placed 3 pieces of walnut in between and learnd a lesson, glue the pieces together before you sandwich them otherwise they seperate like you see in picture #7 .The last bowl is from a scrap of maple.Enjoy and as usual comments welcome.The bowls are finshed with mineral oil and beals buff with carnuba wax. the first bowl has a light walnut stain, I didn't like the look so left the other natural.The first bowl measures 6"x 2 1/2" the second bowl is 6" x 2" and the last bowl is 7 1/2"x 3 1/2"

    Cool stuff, Ken. The plywood and walnut look nice together, and the little scrap of maple sure has a lot of grain going on.
