Cherry and Leather laced bowl

About this project

A large Cherry bowl made from a section of timber across the bole. Sadly this piece split radially from the pith during the finishing process and rather than throw this piece away I decided to lace the splits with green leather thong. The result is quite pleasing!
I’ve used lacing and stitching before in several pieces using both leather and copper wire and these have been well received by my customers.
