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!

Oh no Dad!! It was so beautiful. I’m so sorry to here that. Glad you were wearing your shield and that I wasn’t standing to the side sanding that cross like I might have been. There’s always the next one. but I know how much work you put into that.

Sorry it exploded!

Wow! Thanks for sharing. It’s pretty eadsy to start thinking that all these projects go off without a hitch. Glad you are OK. Time to buy a face shield. And a good dust mask – I have dust allergies and there is no point in not taking care of myself.

Hi Scrappy Glab u are fine but what were u doing with a skew on a bowl and what make is the skew?? I sound blunt but a skew to refine a bowl where is your bowl gauge or scrapper used in the shere scrapping mode the bowl would be alive and well and your ego intact . Kind Regards Roger SA

Roger, My ego is just fine. Like I said earlier, I am self tought on the lathe. Watching videos on this site and others on the web, along with reading and asking questions is how I learnded. Any links to good info would be apreciated.

Thanks for all the comments. The next one is in the design stage allready.
