This is my 1st completely segmented project = Salad bowl for my wife for Easter .
I’ll be making 4-6 smaller bowls & some Utensils = 2 forks & a large spoon that will go with this main bowl (after Easter)
It measures 14 1/2 inches in circumference/ round & 6” inches tall
Woods used Maple & Walnut
Finish Used Boiled Linseed Oil / Carnuba wax /Buffed with the Beal sys.
I noticed using oils on lighter woods (Maple etc. ) seems to make the seams more noticable because the oil soaks into the end grain more than the flat sawn or quartersawn sides.( I used Titebond 3 water resistant glue )
I was very pleased with the tightness of the joints over all but a little disappointed with the effects that the oil did were the pieces are joined together.
If you have any tips to combat this issue I’d appreciate it ????
