Stripey Bowl

While I am faffing around with wool crocheting multi-coloured squares my eldest son is up the garden in his workshop playing with wood.  I really shouldn’t say ‘playing’ as the wood-turning he does is very skilled.  He is self-taught and learning slowly having been given a lathe nearly two years ago.  He works as a cabinet-maker so has access to various off-cuts of interest wood and above is this weeks creation which I am incredibly impressed with.

The get the stripey effect he makes a blank by glueing together layers of wood offcuts and then he turns the bowl.  He is pointed out all the faults to me – essentially it isn’t as smooth as it should be and if you are being very fussy you can feel the joins of the wood layers but I think it is very pleasing.
