This is the first segmented bowl that I have made (third bowl overall). The bowl is made of Walnut and Padauk, and is finished with a few light coats of Danish Oil.

Nice job. Like the effect the walnut has.

i really like the looks of this, the walnut and padauk compliment each other nicely. Did you use a program to calculate your segments or just math?

Thanks. No special program, or even any special math. All of the segments were cut on my miter-saw at 15°. I cut one layer, saw how big it was and then cut the next layer a little smaller. The glue-up was fairly tedious, but I used the method shown by Frank Howarth, by gluing up two halves of each layer with a small spacer, then sanding the two halves perfectly level and gluing them together. The hardest part was gluing all of the layers together and get them relatively centered with the adjacent layer.
