I recently saw a segmented bowl made by Lumberjock OSU55 and thought I might try something similar, thanks OSU55.
This lidded bowl is 200mm in diameter comprising several mixed layers of Silky Oak and Jarrah.
The Silky Oak came from my home town & the Jarrah is the result of an outdoor setting that I pulled apart (we replaced it with a lighter version but I kept the wood).
I used Tightbond III to glue the segments and epoxy on the layers.
As with many other projects I used several layers of wipe on poly.

The jagged touch on the lid is insane.

Gorgeous, Grumpy! Love the ‘saw blade’ on the inside of the lid! Memories attached to the Jarrah get to live on.

Great color choice. Really like the saw blade center. I hope to steal. Thanks for sharing.

The lid really sets it apart as a great piece, like others I like your saw tooth work inside :)
nicely done indeed

Many thanks for all your kind words Jocks. I think I’m a bit hooked on this segmenting.

Very nice work. Like you, I’m mostly hooked on segmenting turning.
