    1st segmented bowl

    Hey all this is my first attempt at a segmented bowl.(segmented anything)It don't have a finish on it yet but will probably put some blo and laquor to finish it off. It has some tear out on it but not to much.It's made of cyprus, cedar, and mahogany.All comments welcome

    It is a very good start. I'd love to see it with the finish on.

    Great job Stephen! Make sure to post pic's of post finish. I was also impressed with your fruit replications, I've been trying to nail those down for months. Finish on the apple is especially nice!

    I agree with Mohammad -- great start, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished pics. And I can relate to the tearout. Dried cedar can be a real challenge to get a clean cut on.

    Looks good Steve, segmented turning is one area (of many) that I've not yet dived into. The opportunity for design in segmented turning is really limitless.

    Cheers!

    Good job Stephen. Like Stuart I have not gotten into that area of turning but it has really started calling me here lately.

    Thanks again. I look at all the segmented bowls and hf and think boy i shore like that,one of these days i'm gonna try that.saturday i just desided to go for it,if it failed it failed no big loss as it was made of scrap. I think i'll keep working on them as they weren't as hard as i thought. Ofcorse it'll take some time to get to the pro level, buy it's something to work at.
