LP is the initials for the company I work for. This is the first segmented bowl that I have done with a specific design that I laid out in autocad. I has 1101 pcs. it is about 8” diameter and 6” tall. Made from walnut, bubinga, and maple.

Thanks for looking.

Really like your pattern. You did a great job making the segments come out even where they join.

Beautiful bowl and wonderful design!

Beautiful bowl!

Wondering why when I click to zoom the pictures, they open SMALLER then your originals?

Hi Joe,
To be honest, I have no idea why the pictures do that. They are taken with my phone – so they arent the best pictures to start with.
Thank for the great comments! I appreciate the input

Yeah. What Joe said. There’s, doubtless, a built-in photo editor in your computer. It’s a simple matter to scale them up. 1080 X (locked proportions) is what I always scale to. In my case, it’s 1080×810, but, the format on a phone camera’s different, so your second figure will likely be smaller. This is an extraordinary bowl.
