This is my first segmented turning. Several weeks ago I posted a blog on this and I’m finally getting around to posting the finished project. Being a novice at turning, I’m not qualified to call this blog a “how to”, but just a documentation of the process I went through. This bowl is patterned after one that caught my eye created by Harm Hazeu featured in a book titled, “Fabulous Turned-Wood Projects”. This is a little chunky looking, but so is the original design, thus probably a safer design to try for the first time.
This was a lot of fun, and as I’m sure with many segmented projects, took far less time turning than the preparatory segmenting work.
It’s made of maple, with face grain plugs set in Caribbean rosewood. It also includes eucalyptus and bubinga. The finish is three saturating coats of teak oil, followed by a couple coats of paste wax.
