Real nice Branch, you certainly have this segmenting game sown up. Nice choice of wood.

VERY nice, branch! I wish you would have included some pictures of it while you were creating it. I would have liked to see a picture of the rings before they were assembled and after gluing together, for example. Might be helpful to us newbies!

Hi Branch, I like the symmetrical patterns in these bowls. 325 pieces is a lot of planning, cutting, and glueing, very nice.
