Segmented Bowl Plan (No. PL01) from The Bowl Kit Company. The reversing 'cloud' design on this Southwestern form uses solid-block segments in Brazilian bloodwood and holly.

Herringbone Bowl Plan (No. PL02) from The Bowl Kit Company. The herringbone design is built by alternating ash and wenge angled segments in the design ring construction. The main body and collar ring are made of maple burl accented with hardwood disks and veneers. (8" diameter, 5-1/2" tall)

Seedpot Bowl Plan (No. PL03) from The Bowl Kit Company. The swirling design in this piece of work uses a reversing angled segment technique that is cut on a curve, producing the swirling effect. The walnut burl of the main body is accented with Brazilian bloodwood, holly and dyed veneers. (8" diameter, 5" tall)

Squashpot Bowl Plan (No. PL04) from The Bowl Kit Company. This traditional Southwest squashpot form lends itself nicely to a double row of alternating groups of angled segments. The maple burl main body is accented with lamination disks and veneers. (7-1/2" diameter, 6-1/4" tall)

Teardrop Bowl Plan (No. PL05) from The Bowl Kit Company. A teardrop pattern is produced when a curve is turned around the sides of joined angled segment pairs. The teardrops in this work are made of holly, Brazilian bloodwood and black dyed veneer. (7" diameter, 6" tall)

Pinstripe Bowl Plan (No. PL06) from The Bowl Kit Company. Staves are nothing more than tall vertical segments but the staving technique adds a new dimension to the design palette. The work here uses solid cut staves of African wenge with black and white veneer accents. (5" diameter, 3-3/4" tall)

Tulipwood Open Plan (No. PL07) from The Bowl Kit Company. This classic segmented bowl is fairly simple yet elegant and timeless. One of the easiest forms to turn, this open bowl is made of Brazilian tulipwood with an ebony foot accented with holly and black dyed veneer. (5-1/4" diameter, 4-1/4" tall)

Kingwood Vase Plan (No. PL08) from The Bowl Kit Company. This basic segmented layup uses solid-block segments in Brazilian kingwood with lamination disks and veneers. It is built by gluing the segments into rings which become layers that are stack laminated with the veneers and disks. (5" diameter, 6-1/2" tall)

Satinwood Open Plan (No. PL09) from The Bowl Kit Company. Angled segments are used in the design work on this open form. It is made of Brazilian satinwood (pau cetim) and ebony. The random segment placement can be modified to create interesting alternating and spiraling patterns. (4-1/2" diameter, 6-1/2" tall)

Fluted Veneers Plan (No. PL10) from The Bowl Kit Company. The open curving design in this work is produced by gluing rectangular pieces of veneer to the individual staves prior to gluing the staves into a staves block. Some previous stave constructing experience is suggested. (7" diameter, 5" tall)
