    Open Segmented Bowl Jig

    I made an open segmented bowl jig, from ideas that I got on line. You can see the jig and the first bowl that I made with it (and the problems) at my web site http://dennyedwards.com.

    I have used a similar jig in the past. It didn't belong to me though.

    I will watch the videos some other time as I am in no mood to install quicktime right now.

    I like this jig because the segments do not slip down after applying the glue, unlike the jigs that are mounted on the lathe perpendicular to the piece. I was working on one open segmented bowl that required me to take the piece off of the jig and true up the face and then re-mount it on the jig. I ended up screwing up the alignment of the segments. Next time I will try the lathe mounted jig.
