Un-turned fruit bowl
Despite appearances this bowl never went anywhere near a lathe. It was made from wedge shaped pieces I had left over from another job which seemed a waste to throw away. So putting them together in various ways, ( a bit like your average 2 yearold playing with lego) I hit on the idea of cutting out the middle on a band saw , cleaning up and putting them together. Problem was, they weren’t all the same wood, so I black polished some and left the figured sycamore as was. Just screws and glue. Although it doesn’t look like it from the photo its 12″ x 12″ x 6″

work of art. well done.
Thanks for all the comments, guys! No plans to make plans for sale but its not that difficult to figure out. You will need to make two accurate jigs though; one for drilling and the other for cleaning up the inside profile on a shaper.
Great design. The more I make in wood... design is everything, and you invented a great design!
do you offer plans for the no lathe bowl.
Thinking outside the box, or in this case bowl, resulted in one fantastic piece. Well done.

That is very inventive. I have a few odd pieces laying around, maybe I will have to try one. Nice job!!
