Wood Turned Maple Bowl

The rough turned maple bowl that I wanted to finish next had cracked.  The crack was at an angle to vertical when the bowl was sitting normally.  I cut out the section of the bowl with the crack on the band saw.  Then I build a new segmented piece to take the place of the section. In this new section, I continue the idea of the chevron pattern, and add more detail.  I give the chevron pattern branches by adding alternating pieces of birch and walnut wood on either side of the pattern.  I also add a walnut ring at the top of the bowl so the segmented pattern has something to die into.  Then I turn the whole bowl down to a finished piece.
