Just a relaxing evening in the shop at my NovaDVR. Great therapy, lost in the smells of cedar and lacquer!! This bowl is for a woman who retired from my office. I think she’s giving it to her brother for a gift. He is just amazed at all the little pieces glued together that make a round bowl! Hope he enjoys it. The bottom is black walnut, the second ring up is mahogany, third ring up is wormy chestnut, top ring is mahogany and cedar strips laminated vertically. The vertical laminations really give a great look after turned. You segmented bowl turners should try it if you haven’t already. Everybody loves that look around the rim. Keep the chips flyin’!!

One day I will be about to turn like this. I figure it’ll take another 10 years of practice or so. This is a really nice looking bowl. Keep up the good work.

Just last night I watched a DVD where a woodworker showed how to make a segmented bowl on the band saw. I also checked out the NovaDVR. Beautiful bowl. Thanks for posting this.

I’ll never have the patience to glue up all those pieces, but you’ve done a wonderful job. Great gift!

I’‘m a turner Dennis and I’ve yet to try segmented turning. I’ve even bought books on it. Just got to jump in and get my feet wet. Very nice project. jockmike

Do you have a step-by-step plan for segmented turning?? Did you start with a book or DVD?
