Thank you all...I still question the layer thickness going from wide at the rim to narrow at the bottom of the bowl. The gradation really simulates growth rings.
It is very light so maybe the bamboo...or the LVR.
Thanks again.



I have turn a couple of Bamboo bowls and they did not look anything like you shown.  I also have to say plywood of some kind like they say Baltic Birch
