Nice bowl.

My wife and I turn wood. Always wondered if anyone else
turned on this forum.

Keep posting the pictures.

WOW! I do a small amount of turning; Pens, canes, and bottle stoppers. That is one of my goals to turn a segmented
bowl. That is Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Dsmythe

I use Titebond II wood glue!
I figure I have 4 to 5 hours in preparing the blank, and 1.5 hours in the actual turning. It is mahogany and aspen-turns really nicely, especially when the grain turns this way!

I was pretty sure you had more time into making the blank than the turning would take. All those wedges have to be just right so you don't end up with gaps. Too fiddly for me I'm afraid.

This is a vase I made for the wife out of figured Big Leaf Maple.




I used my metal lathe since I don't have a wood lathe. I also have made her a few sizes of rug hooking tools out of Holly.

Do you make rings or one solid block of glued-up pieces?
