Default Bowls for Christmas

My Sister-in-Law asked for a bowl for Christmas. Either a bowl no bigger than a cereal bowl, or one big enough to display fruit. Well, after making the small bowl, I wanted to make a larger one. I basically made square end grain checkerboard cutting boards, 2 for each bowl. Then I cut rings from the two cutting boards, with one ring slightly smaller than the other. The solid center piece from the larger ring became the solid bottom of the bowl. The small one is 5 1/2 inches diameter, and the larger one is 11 1/2 inches. Woods are Mahogany and Maple. Finish is 100% pure Tung Oil.

Good job, the way you matched the bottoms with the sides is really clever. I hadn't thought about it before ,but by cutting rings it would work out. Sure makes an interesting pattern and color combination.. Make some more.
