This was my first attempt at a segmented bowl. I didn’t want to use my good wood for my first segmented bowl attempt so I thought why not some plywood. Turning plywood was probably more challenging than turning regular wood. The top ring is poplar and the bottom has a ring of mystery wood I received from my neighbor.
Turning plywood was tough on the turning tools but it forced me to learn how to sharpen my tools free hand.
I feel comfortable sharpening any of my tools without a jig. After sanding to 320, I applied about 3 coats of shellac and two coats of a water based poly. Then steel wool with wax. Still need to finish the bottom but I need to make a donut chuck. I will definitely make more segmented projects but not with plywood.
