this is bamboo,walnut,& paduk open and closed segmented bowl about 8” round and 7” high. it was quit a challenge getting the open segments to stay until glue would dry. they are glued on at a 90% angle and the weight would pull down on the glue joint .

That’s neat. It does look like it would be a challenge to glue up.

Fantastic turning. Outstanding design and what a spin. I can see where that glue up had to be a pain.

Keep it up.
