Approximately 9” x 2” I have a lot to learn but I’m ready to get started.

Interesting pattern. I would also like to know about the orientation of the segments. It looks like maybe face grain, but I’d like to be sure. I took a peek at your profile and saw that you are a quilter. This bowl reflects that background. Nice work and welcome.

Thank you all for the welcome.
Yes I ment to have face grain on top and bottom of my block grin. In the quilting world you would say I put two pieces in wrong side out, glueing however is not so easily unpicked lol so it was a good learning experience.
My sister is the wood turner so credit goes to her for the awsome shape. I cut, pieced and glued the block. Then she demoed the turning and use of the different tools. I finished it off with the sanding and polishing.
It is save to say my next piece of equipment will be a lathe, but till then my next project will be a end grain cutting board.
Ps I did add another picture showing the two end grain pieces.

that’s really nice. You gotta love the amazing diversity of wood colors, that they will allow you to quilt. I like that, having finished the quilt, I don’t have to go back over the whole project and quilt the sandwich!
