this is my first attempt at making a segmented bowl. as such, i wanted to practice on some lower cost wood. I used red oak for the bottom and poplar for the remaining layers. there are 8 segments in each ring and the top of the bowl is 11 inches across. I finished it with tung oil.
I also learn a few lessons while making this. I need to get a better table for my disc sander. and using a solid single piece for the bottom is a pain in the bottom. it looks good but it is tough to turn. jam chucks, are not that easy to use.
I am happy with the outcome and will be making more bowls, I am thinking maybe something dark.
