This is a walnut and maple bowl I made for a friend a few months ago. The segment cutting jig I use is only good for a 12 segment ring, but it is pretty accurate. I am looking to make a “wedgie” jig in the near future so I can make rings with more segments. Thanks for taking a look, George

I have always admired the segmented bowls, but I also admire using classic domestic woods like walnut and maple. This is a very nice combination.

Very nice work, also the pad that is on your Head stock of your lathe, did you buy that or did it come with the lathe?

Thank you bambi & nk3t! Vince, the pad on the head stock came with the lathe. I do not know if they sell them after-market.
