I made this for my Rotary Club. Maple and walnut, 181 pieces. Made a few mistakes following my plan, but they became design opportunities. If i had to do it over, i might not have three bands of maple in the middle. It seemed like a good idea at the time!

Very nice!  I agree I think the 3 bands of maple break up the pattern too much.

Some people are like slinkies... totally worthless but it puts a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs.

I like the way the pattern looks from overhead, sort of a spiral mandala. Side view not so much, for the reason you point out. Having said that, I will be ecstatic if my first effort at a fully segmented bowl comes out as nice.

Seems a single row might have looked less discontinuous to my eye.

You fixed it! How did you do that? Parting tool and glue? Grin
