Oh so cool… so when you’re gluing up the segments, the one section (with the navajo type design), those are obviously cut out and glued first, right? Is each one of those sections just 2 pieces of wood? A closeup of that would be nice.

Beautiful bowl, I’ve always wanted to turn something like this. I must get a lathe someday.

A beautiful segmented bowl. I also want more info on the navajo style blocks. How were they made?

Very nice looking bowl. You need to blog on how to glue up one of these bowls. Even thou I am not a turner I would be intereseted in how this is done. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

I love this bowl. I own one like this that Bill made. Maybe that is the one.
