I sold my last Sunrise Bowl so had to make another one. It has a Mahogany bottom with Cherry rings and the feature ring is done with Aspen and Walnut. It measures 11" across and 5.5 " deep.

Very nice. I would love to see a video on how you did that.

Thanks, Todd I learned it from a video on youtube by Steve Lindsley and tweaked his methods a little.

Good job, Rob. I like that you used more domestic wood than exotic wood. It shows our wood is pretty too.

Beautiful ..I am new to turning and I know I might be getting a little ahead of myself but I would love to try something like that. I have a tendency to surprise myself Smiley

Can i have the link to that video please
Did you design the bowl also?
Also how long have you been turning? Im hoping you say not to long But that would not be my first guess

Here is a link, the sunrise part is included further along. I have been turning for probably 30 years but don't consider myself any kind of expert, just enjoy the challenge of trying something a little more involved. Sometimes they work out and sometimes not so much.

It's me, the bad guy
I would suggest you work on the transition area.
The majority of the piece is nice but there are issues with the first ring and transition not blending for a smooth uniform surface.
You don't want something small like that taking away from all the work you put into the piece.

Ed I would agree with you, the bottom piece I used was too thin to make that transition better I sold the bowl at Christmas, and non-woodworkers didn't pick up on that minor detail and loved it. But I know what you mean. Thumbs Up

One thing I learned early on.
The first and many times the second and third rings (depending on the profile) need to be 50% to 100% thicker than your design. It's too easy to change the profile to a different curve with a few light cuts, only to find out you're walls are getting dangerously thin. BTDT
It may look good on paper but that only translates if every single step along the way is perfect. One small thing out of alignment can have a large impact once construction is completed. It just easier to give yourself a little extra material at the beginning, for either a small unseen error or for the ability to modify the shape a small amount.
As I always say, Glue big, cut small.
