The bowl is constructed on a solid wooden form and it looks like this on the inside when it first comes off the mold.
Next you attach hand-made paper between each joint so that it stays together!
The masking tape shown here is essential before the paper strips are glued on the inside. The green masking tape keeps the joints from splitting and ruining all of the work you put in! Shown at the bottom is a piece of wood connecting all the ribs together. This is called the cap, I chose a piece of yew with a good amount of sap wood for a nice look.
