Segmented bowl out of walnut and soft maple. Bowl is about 6” tall and 12-1/2” diameter. The 1st 3 pics show it finished, the last 3 as sanded ready to finish. The bowl was sealed with glue size for blotch control, colored with transtint dye in Target EM400 stain base, and topcoated with thinned solvent poly. Here is a blog tutorial on the process.

While tight glue seams and an accurate glue up help, it still has to turned and then finished.
