Great looking bowl. But it is unclear to me how you cut the spiral groove for the black stringing. Looks like you hog out the whole inlay (maybe 1.5″) about 1/8″ deep on the lathe. But then. how do you cut the spiral grove inside this space accurately for the black stringing? I dont get the concept behind the spacer blocks either, and what they were used for. I guess I am thick eh? Can you explain a bit further? Thanks so much!
I turned out the entire void, then glue black veneer stringing on edge to create the spiral black lines. The simply filled in the rest of the void and … wait for it….inlay made easy! hope this helps.
