Here is the PurpleHeart and Maple Segmented bowl I have been working on for the last week.
Was 6 inch diam X 4 1/2 tall. 37 pieces of wood.
This is what happens when you are refining the outside and have the skew catch the wood.
I wonder how long it will take me to find the rest of the pieces. haha Only found 8 of the maple and 6 of the purpleheart so far.(should be 12 of each)
Just another reminder that not all projects come out s planned.
Also SAFTEY FIRST!!!!!!! Thankfully I NEVER turn without my face shield. At least one of these pieces bounced off the shield. The rest are scatted around the corners of the shop.
As you can see it also snapped the blade off of my 1 1/4 inch skew chisel. Thankfully, it did not fly around.
Well, just wanted everyone to see, Always be carfull and stay as safe as possible.
Will be starting another one this weekend. Wish me luck!
