Cherry and Figured Maple Tapered Stave Bowl
This elegant but simple bowl is made with 12 alternating tapered staves of cherry and figured maple. Cherry is one of Ted’s favorite woods because it darkens in hue over time.
Tapered staves are made with a compound miter cut. Both the sawblade and miter gauge are at an angle for each side of the stave. The sides of the bowl slope out at a 30-degree angle. The segmented top rim and the three-layer bottom were constructed separately and then glued to the staved portion before final turning.
This bowl is protected by multiple coats of a durable Danish oil finish, waxed and buffed to a satin sheen.
Woods Used: Cherry and Figured Maple.
Dimensions: 8-3/8 inches at it widest point, 3-7/8 inches across the base, and 4-3/4 inches tall.
Use and care: Dust and fingerprints can be removed with a soft cloth. Please do not use this bowl to hold anything that retains moisture.
