Nice job.

Wow ... that's beautiful

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Beautiful
Looks like you struggled with the inlaid outer rings a little?

Learning more about tools everyday

Really really amazing looking bowl. This is really a piece of artwork! One of the coolest pieces I've seen.

That's very nice Dean - I'd like to see more pix too.

Did you create the marquetry first and set it into the bowl as a finished piece, or do the work directly into the bottom of the bowl?

Amazing work, I'm jealous of your creativity on that bowl! What is the diameter of the platter?

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

The outer rings wern't as tight as I would like them to be, for a first effort I'm satisfied. The rose is made from sand shaded popular veneer peices then inlaid. Thanks for the kudos, inspires me to do more similar work. Google Dave Peck and look at some of his work, he lives down the road from me. Took a class from him.

Thats lovely Dean.Has a nice scale to it.

One way we sort of "cheat" when doing colour stripes in bow handles........lets say its a dark'ish wood(Bubinga) as the major pc,when doing a Maple colour stripe....say an 1/8",we'll put in a Black 1/16" pc on both sides of it.We're usin epoxy,and even though its sorta clear....when glued up it'll always apear Black(its the depth).So by using Black "backup" stripes,the glue lines just disapear.BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
