I’ve been itching to try one of these for a couple of years now and finally convinced myself that I could do it last week. My first 5 or 6 attempts at cutting segments did not go well but finally I got the angle right. My equipment is obviously not as accurate as I thought. I made 4 X 12 segment rings on Friday and glued them together. On Saturday afternoon I faced them on both sides and then Sunday morning glued the rings to the base. Then today I turned the bowl, sanded to 400 grit and polished with friction wax, Shellawax.
This is a pretty basic job but I am quite happy with the result, especially as it’s my first attempt.
The bowl is 6.75in wide and 5.25in high.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
C & C welcome.
