This is my first Segmented Bowl made on my Ringmaster, then mounted to my lathe for final sanding. This bowl was made from 6 segments of mahogany, glue up into two sets of 3 wedges, then those two sets were joined to make a 6 sided piece. The bowl measures 8” in diameter and is 5” tall. Finished with two coats of Clear Shellac, sanded with 400 grit in between coats, then three coats of rattle can lacquer.

Great Job. You’ll get hooked on Ringmaster, I did. Try and
be creative with your board and then you can have ribbons and
lace going all around the sides.

I have some pictures on my site if you want some ideas.
