Finally got this one finished today, It has 73 pieces, 6 species of wood and was sanded to 320 and then 4 coats of Wipe on Poly.
It measures 11inches by 5.25inches.
Timbers are;
Jarrah,
Blackheart Sassafras,
Casuarina (she oak),
Tasmanian Oak,
Oregon, and
Pine.
Hope you like this one, and thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.

Bob.

Hey Bob how can you accurately determine Jarrah from Karri?

Real nice Bob, a great combination of woods. Like the finish I must try wipe on poly sometime.

Look real nice Bob. These segmented bowls are interesting to look at with all the different woods, nice finish I must give wipe on poly a try some day (is it water base)?. I think this is only your 2nd one if I remembered correctly. I wish you lived close by so I could give you my huge box of scrap’s of all kinds of wood. I know you would make them look good!

Awesome. Cool looking flair on the top of the bowl. I may try the wipe on poly myself on my next turning.

Really like this one Bob, using those smaller rings set it off nice., choice of wood and finish, are a plus too, think you are on your way.

Hey Bob how can you accurately determine Jarrah from Karri?

- robscastle


Hi Rob,
Jarrah is usually darker red than Karri, but the most noticeable difference is that Karri is a lot more fibrous in texture. You get a much cleaner cut with Jarrah,
Cheers,
Bob.

Tony,
No Mate, it is not water based, unfortunately.
Thanks for the scraps. LOL

Cheers,
Bob

G’day Bob. Another nice Bowl, really well done. I like the way the segments are placed and how they enhance the colours of the different woods.
Bob, do you put aside a special blade for your table saw when cutting segments? Eg: A thin kerfed blade with lots of teeth?
Great project!!!!! Regards,

Cliff.

Hi Cliff,
I cut all the segments with my Bandsaw, but will get my Tablesaw set up one day. I would use a thin kerf when I am organised.
Thanks for your interest.
