    Bloodwood/Birch Segmented Bowl

    The 1st segmented bowl I've tried and LOML just loves it! Can't ask for much more than that.

    129 pieces; 4-5/8" high x 8-7/8" across the top.

    Any comments, criticisms or suggestions always welcome. Thanks for looking.

    I'm one of those who don't care for segmented work, but I do respect the artist and the work that goes into this type of turning. Well done Gord, nicely laid out, and great form and finish!

    Well done Gord. Great form, finish and the lay out is great. I am another one who did one segmented piece just to say I did.

    I can see why LOYL loves it. You did a great job. I like the pattern, and the joints look first-rate.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    I enjoy the challenge of creating the rings as much as I do the turning so I'm probably one who will do more segmented work in the future.

    VERY nice work Gord!

    Tell me, did you have any flash back while that thing was spinning in front of you

    Cheers!

    First the disclaimer: I have a (Jet Mini) lathe, but I am not a turner. The last time I used the lathe was six months ago - to make a chisel handle.

    Now, that aside, I really like that bowl. What I like most about it is the way you evenly graduated the size of the pieces as the bowl's diameter increased. It really makes a smooth looking piece.
