Key bowl with stained glass flower.

I think that this piece fits in this category .I had this chunk of elm ,half turned into a bowl that wasn't looking very promising.After it laying around the shop for years,I was looking at it one day and thinking what could I do with this?

This is what I ended up with.It hangs by my back door and is a place to throw my keys into ,so I always know where they are.
The centre ring  went through many ideas.Just placing a nice piece of wood with nice grain in it,then I thought of carving something into the wood,my carving skills need work.Then maybe some little pine cones ,or dried flowers incased in resin.But I settled on a stained glass flower.

I always wanted to do a stain glass center in a turning. You took the idea to another level.

Thanks guys.
Ron, what do you think of using the same stained glass idea in the bottom of a bowl?It is pretty thick and sturdy and could handle things like fruit on top of it.I haven't tried it ,but was thinking of it.

I was thinking of using the stained glass as an insert on the bottom of the bowl so it would have a little extra support. I honestly don't know if the soldered pieces would be strong enough to support someone dumping the fruit into the bowl as apposed to simply placing in the fruit in.

I'm thinking ,maybe if there is a wooden backing under the glass,but suppose there would always be the chance it could be cracked.One would have to be careful .I might give it a try sometime.Nothing ventured ,nothing gained. Smiley

Yes, that's what I meant by an insert.

Wouldn't there always be a void under the glass? The lead would be in contact with the wood bottom. Would floating the stained glass on a puddle of epoxy be an option? no voids.
