This is my first attempt at a segmented bowl. It holds candy, but there is a lot of room for progress.
It is made of walnut, lyptus, maple, and ash. The walls are really too thick, but I wanted to not explode the first one, so I’ll go for much thinner on the next one. Lamps and other things are in mind for the segmented or laminated approach if I can get the quality I’m looking for, plus I do like finishing all side grain. I know the pictures need to be bigger, clearer, ...
but right now thats the best my cheap little computer camera will take, and a spindle sander will cross my door way before that camera upgrade. A guy’s gotta have priorities, even us amateurs.

Enjoy the day

Looks nice, Tom!

I hear you on the priorities. The problem is that a really nice digital camera can be found for $150 or less these days, and most of the toys on my wish list cost a lot more than that. lol!

Nice beginning. Before you know it you will be turning paper thin sides. I guess I’m in a minority, but I actually like the thicker sided projects a little better.

Very nice! From a non-turner’s perspective, the thickness of the sides doesn’t bother me at all :).
