Thanks!! I turned it that way. Here is a link to some pics of how I mounted it on my lathe [link] . A fellow woodturner recently posted this: [link] on youtube, very good how-to.

This is gorgeous. I love the contrast between the teak and beech.

Good work. did you have any trouble working between the two very differently dense woods?

Thanks! No, the biggest issue I had was getting a consistent thickness from the points all the way through to the solid part of the bowl.

Yes, that would be difficult when you can't see the points as they move.

Thank you! Yes, I have only finished one piece [link] it is missing the bark as it started to come off while turning, so I removed all of it. If I have to do this in the future I am going to try some different edge treatments like burning. I have roughed out a few others, but they are not dry enough to return yet.

It's so simplistic yet intricate. How do you get these shapes?

It started as a cube glued up in a checkerboard pattern. It was then turned on a lathe mounted from corner to corner.

Thanks!
