Since buying my Ringmaster lathe about a year ago I’ve made over 100 bowls with different woods and configurations but this time I even surprised myself.
The first bowl is beetle kill pine, yellow pine and a top ring of walnut and aromatic cedar 9 3/4” wide x 3” high
The second bowl is aromatic cedar, bkp, walnut and top ring of bkp and butternut 9 3/4” wide x 4’ high
The third bowl is bkp, walnut, butternut and top ring of walnut and oak 9 3/4” wide x 4’ high

Thanks for looking and share your thoughts.

Very interesting bowls, great grain patterns and contrasting colors. As I look at the three bowls, I keep trying to figure out how the pieces were cut and glued together to make these patterns. Perhaps you can photograph the glue-up sometime, I’d be curious to see that. Thanks for showing.

@oldtool – here’s a couple pics of the beginning – the first picture shows a bowl sitting on the board from which it came

The second picture shows the segments and the board they were cut from

The third picture shows the glued up bowl blank, then it off to the ringmaster to cut it up again

Thanks for the photos. After looking at them, I went to Google for a look at the Ring Master lathe, which I thought was a “typical” wood lathe. Not a lathe but rather a lathe accessory, and pretty cool tool at that. I found this video of it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/2n4uY9oJ-tA

Thanks, happy turning.

Dick, you have certainly mastered the Ring Master. Well done old friend, I like it. Those 6 segment bowls are so much fun to make.

Very nice. The ring kinda finishes them off. I really like the third one over to RH. Good job on the points matching and I like a lot of contrast. You are the RingMaster guru. He has been the guide to my somewhat success with RM segmented bowls and they are a lot of fun to make. Thanks Dick.
