This is a commissioned bowl for a birthday present for the wife of a friend of mine. Her name is Leslie and her nickname is sometimes L$ so the thought was to abstract this into a pattern for a decorative ring of a segmented bowl. The L was easy to making into segmented wood pieces but the $ took a little more work. What I ended up with is a series of triangles forming an abstracted $. The bowl is made with walnut for the darker wood and hard maple for the lighter wood. It is made with twelve segments, and is about 14 inches in diameter.
