Can any one help me , how is this center ring made? It does not look like it is just sideways more off a shallow sine wave curve!

The vessel is turned on it's side and a curve is cut through with a bandsaw.

I'm signed up for a class with him at the Rockport School of Furniture Craftsmanship  October 16 -20!!!

I saw that in their catalog and had to take it to figure out how he  does it!
Here's a link to their site:

Once you get your jigs fine tuned, it simple to do. IMO

So basically its precision bandsaw work? Bowl is cut, insert wave cut on bandsaw, then glued together?

It's not a 3-axis jig.
The jig is "basically" a circle jig (1-axis) for the bandsaw.
The jig needs to hold a woodturning chuck square on it's side (as if it we're mounted on the lathe).
The adjustment and fine tuning come into play when deciding what size radius to cut the blank with. This will all depend on the diameter of the bowl.

Yep John Beaver and he came to our club to teach us that.  It starts with a jig on the bandsaw and I forgot to remind him to make me one.  You use the jib to cut the bowl and to cut the piece of wood.

Other than outside of bowl, am i to assume rings are finished on outside before glue up? If you where to insert veneer the ring would have to be oblong to attain a even circular even distance on out side of bowl. Or would the ring be larger and fial diameter finished turned on lathe?

The John Beaver jig is available (for a rather stiff price) from Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register Building your own shouldn't be all that complex.

I saw him demonstrate at SWAT last year. This a neat way to break out of the "just bowls" habit.

I've said it before. if you don't like or can't build jigs, you probably shouldn't be in woodworking.  If you engage in almost any type of woodworking, you should be able to construct jigs, guides and fixtures to aid in your work. If you have to rely on off the shelf equipment, you'll be the one paying the hefty price, if you can find it at all. JMO
$179-$399 is outrageous, also JMO
