We had the biggest turnout ever at the January turners meet.  Denny demonstrated how to make a bowel from a single piece of wood. The trick is to cut out concentric circles with the blade at an angle and then glue them together in reverse order.  You can do this on a band saw if you make half circles and then glue them back together. Or, if you have a scroll saw you can cut them out without having to cutting them in half. The bowels end up in a basic funnel shape if you use one board, but you can get other shapes if you use two boards and take every other layer from each board. You can add variety to the piece by gluing together different kinds of wood into a single board.
