My first attempt was a small bowl, about 6-1/2" diameter across the top. I left it plain, since it looked pretty nice just the way it was.
My second attempt was a larger bowl, about 9-1/2" diameter, with a slightly different glue-up. I decided, this time, to add a contrasting top ring and base that would set off the bowl without competing with it.
I'm not sure where I'll go from here, but I sure am cleaning out my scrap pile!
