"4th of July" Dizzy Bowl
This beautiful bowl is of the type known as a Dizzy Bowl. Dizzy Bowls are segmented bowls that are constructed from the base up from a series of rings. For this bowl, Ted made 17 rings, each containing an increasing number of layers of wood. The wall thickness of this bowl is 1/4 of an inch.
Be sure to check out our Blog for an article and photos explaining the construction technique used to create this type of bowl.
The woods used in this bowl are figured soft maple, bloodwood, walnut, wenge, cherry, and Americana SpectraPly, which is a hardwood laminate formed from layers of pigmented birch veneer.
Dimensions: 11-1/4″ top diameter, 3-1/8″ diameter at base, and 5-1/4″ tall.
The bowl is finished with multiple coats of durable Danish oil, topped with several coats of a gloss polyurethane finish.
Use and Care Instructions: Dust and fingerprints can be removed with a soft cloth. Do not use the bowl to contain anything that retains moisture.
