Hello again, I just finished a new segmented bowl and am looking for constructive comments. The bowl is made from 304 segments of Cherry and Ebony, plus there is an Ebony Plug in the bottom and the top ring is a solid slab of Cherry burl.
My wife says I am too critical of my work. This bowl did not turn out quite like I had envisioned. The goal was to highlight a piece of cherry burl so I made this bowl form cherry and ebony and then used a solid section of Burl for the top ring. The joints are great and I had no construction issues and I don’t think the solid burl will have so much movement to cause a construction problem; however, I am not a big fan of the final shape. The goal was to repeat the diamonds form the featured ring on the lip, but to me it seems kind of stilted. What do you think of the final shape? Note – any other comments also welcome. Finish is Watco’s Danish Oil.
