A year ago I liberated some maple wood from a firewood stash.  I turned it into several bowl roughs.  Now I am finishing the first of those bowls.   This bowl rough had cracked.  I cut the section of the bowl with the crack out on the band saw.  Then I made a new segmented section to fill in that section.  The new section is made of walnut and maple from the same tree.  The grain of the new piece is oriented the same way as the original bowl.  The pattern in the segments of the new piece make a chevron pattern by flipping every other segment.
