    My latest Bowl

    At 10.00 AM yesterday this was a bunch of glued up scraps in the form of a flat board on my bench .
    Three hours later it was this bowl . Most of the time was glue drying time .

    Nice looking bowl, William. Good combination of woods and shapes!!!

    Do you have photos of your glue-up and other steps you use before turning a bowl like this? I'm just learning.

    This was the glue up . It was four inches wide to be cut into segments to make a 8" diameter bowl .

    Here are the segments cut. They are just dry placed together in that photo . Then they were glued together to make a flat board . The board was then cut into rings at an angle and stacked and glued to form the bowl .

    The segmented board (after glue up) was planed to a thickness of 0.753 which required a cutting angle of 1.494 to produce 1/4" thick rings that stack almost perfectly on each other and only need a 5 to 10 minute sanding on the lathe to a final wall thickness of about 3/16 before applying the finish .
