Making a Hexagon Bowl

The hexagon bowl is one of the more complex pieces made especially when different wood varieties are used. Care is taken to select the pattern of each piece. After some practice, I developed a jig to assist in gluing the bowl together. However, it still requires multiple clamps that makes the process look more like some strange science project.
