    12'' segmented bowl

    After a to long time I finished a turning.
    This time a 12'' segmented bowl, you could see this as a try out for my beltsander too.
    I made this bowl of ''Grenenhout", is not to translate in English, but you can compare this the best with yellow pine.
    It have a very nice smell, and 30 years ago I build with this ''Grenenhout'' two cabinets, and my writingdesk, all still in use.
    This type of ''Grenenhout'' is not that soft, turned very well, and good to sand. Finished with two layers blanc transparent stain.
    Comments are very wellcome.

    Nice looking bowl Ad! You are right - it does look like the yellow pine we have over here. Nice form and finish on the bowl!

    So, do you like segmented turning? Just wondering as I haven't even tried it yet. Seems way to time consuming and then you have all the precision joints you have to cut and glue... Seems like way to much work!

    Anyway, I like your bowl!

    Ad, very nice looking bowl. Like Steve, I don't think I have the skill or the patience to do segmented turning...well done!

    Very nice work Ad!

    I gave up tonight, I blew up one box and two square plates, so I figured it was time for bed

    Nicely done, Ad. I also agree that the Grenenhout wood looks similar to yellow pine. One of these days I hope to try some segmented pieces. For now, I'm having too much fun turning green wood.

    Keep them coming!
