Theese bowls are made from spalted beech and kebony - the two dark rings.
The bowls measure 10 cm High and 16 cm in diameter, and treated with
Liberon Finishing Oil.

Very nice. Good choice of wood.

Some members in the woodclub in SCW have made similar knitting bowls. Some segmented, some not.

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.
