Yep, I make a lot of ort bowls. Since Gail has become more well known in the needlepoint world I have access to many more needlepoint women.

Just this year I started making layered bowls a la Jim McPhail using up scraps that I have saved for years from my jewelry box and tackle box making days.

Here is one of my layered ort bowls in oak and walnut. About 3" by 3".

By the way, on the advice of Charles Jones an English turner I started using cascamite a powdered resin glue for my layered bowl blanks. Charles said that he doesn't experience glue creep with the cascamite. So far I haven't experienced any creep either although I only started using this glue a couple of months ago.
