The wood ring is parted off the top of the bowl. It's then trued up and sized down before the recess is cut in the top of the bowl. A groove is turned into the ring for the lattice pieces to fit into and everything is smoothed and sanded. I still have to finish sanding inside and out and turn the bottom. The lattice pieces also need to cut and fitted.
I also finished turning the Olive burl from the other night. I still have to finish filling in the cracks on the inside as well as sand and finish. I hoped toget this set done in time for the DWR but I'm now thinking that's not going to happen.
