I made these several years ago. I noticed Ampeater’s post and thought I’d put these up. These are also made of hard maple and paduch. Paduch really makes a mess and bleeds badly. Hopefully you can’t see all the screw ups in these.

You did great with these bowls. This is what I am about to do for my next project, using a router and no lathe but yours is outstanding and several leaps above to what I was thinking of doing! Great job!

Those really look nice. I will have to try one of those. I will have to start with one of the simple ones.

I’m pretty sure the idea came from Woodsmith magazine. It’s basicly gluing up a layered block, attaching a template and routering away what you don’t want. There is a bowl making router bit and extension required. Naturally, I didn’t do it the easy way.

Roy, I got a chance to look at these at the Arizona picnic. You did a fantastic job on them. You should put in dimensions so people know just how big these are.
As for flaws, we are our own worse critic. I would love to make a segmented bowl even half as nice as these.
Keep up the fantastic work.
