Default 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".

Very creative!

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!

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