    Low profiled segmented bowl

    Did a try out with my new mitre saw, by making a low profiled segmented bowl.
    Still I have to make fit the last segment in a segmented ring, so I'm not fully satisfied.
    Miss a belt sander, and I decided to build an belt sander on my lathe.
    Than I'm able to make half segmented rings, flatten these half rings on the belt sander and glue them together till one complete segmented ring.
    Than I have perfect segmented rings.
    Nontheless the mitre saw works perfect, so I maked a step into the right direction.
    The bowl is 10'' in diameter, and is finished with two layers of blanc transparent stain. Used light colored wood, my favorite color

    Looks good Ad. Please also post a pic of the lathe mounted belt sander when you complete it.

    That is sweet Ad, and good to hear the saw worked well.

    I might just be getting into segmented turnings, I've only got a few bowl blanks left, and I've not found a source for any new wet wood

    Hey guys, thank you all very much.
    Stuart, besides I love it in the first place to make my own stuff, segmented turnings is one of my favorites, it's time consuming but also very satisfying to do.

    Very nice bowl, Ad. It also shows that your new miter saw is working very good.
