I agree with Mike a nice choice of woods. The bowl look larger than 10x 16 cm. I have a sister that knits and making a bowl for her has been on my "to do it" list for some time now. How did you cut the slots?
Thank you Mike and Stuart for nice Words.
Stuart, I make the slots by use of a manual fret saw with twisted blade, then I use sandpaper to open the slot as wide as I want it.
I have seing some woodturner here in Norway using compas saw, both manual and electrik. First time I should make the slot I used a router but that went wrong. The router eat the bowl.
