Intarsia bowl experiment
The latest is an experiment in a changing shape bowl. The transition from an octagon to round top and bottom from a single poplar board was a bit of a challenge. Still don't have an easy layout formula as it was mostly by eye and lots of sanding.
Just messing with intarsia figures for the design feature "ring".

And transitions are a bear to sand--all that wood that needs to be removed, but the effects can be interesting. Transitioning to round is an important one, and about the only one I tend to work with. I will only use softer woods if that's what I have in mind. There's a reason why I love mahogany and sapele. And you really get the max out of a poplar board!

I guess after Christmas and the worst of winter I have to get bowl serious on both the scroll saw and lathe.
It's curved when I want straight, and straight when I want curved.

That looks great, I couldn't even imagine something like that, let alone create it.
