This instructable will show you how to design, laser cut, and build a stacked bowl quickly and easily. These bowls waste very little material during manufacturing. They can be made from a variety of matrials like: plywood, solid wood, and acrylic. The instructions assume that you have CorelDraw available to use. I'm using version 14, but most any recent version should work fine. You can also use other drawing software, but the process of creating the concentric rings may not be as easy.
You can find pictures of a variety of bowls that I have made at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tinkerology/sets/72157630041137092/Supplies and Materials
