This highly detailed wooden bowl was turned by Dennis, a customer of Windsor Plywood Vernon store. The bowl is 14″ tall with main body made from Aspen with a ring of Blue Alowood. Inlay on the neck is Bubinga, Purpleheart and Blue Alowood.

Dennis resides with his family in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in the interior of British Columbia. Shortly after retiring from a career as a Boilermaker Superintendent, Dennis decided to more actively pursue one of his many artistic hobbies, woodworking.  Soon afterwards, a neighbour introduced him to the art of turning bowls on a wood lathe.  Well a passion soon arose.  From simple solid piece bowls Dennis quickly moved on to designing more complex segmented bowls that allowed more of his artistic side to come through.

Each and every bowl is a one-of-a-kind original creation.  Using a variety of the abundant local woods and some exotic woods blended together Dennis creates bowls with unique forms and colour matches.

Once again, congratulations to Dennis and his fantastic project!
