Eventually I’d like to do some segmented turning. I thought a simple layered bowl would be a good place to start. Walnut and maple, finished with Liberon turner’s wax.

I’m seeing two rings of maple on the outside, but only one ring on the inside (and the bottom). Is that an optical illusion, or the way the woods are laminated?
The walnut has a beautiful wood grain. Good capture Charlie!

Randy, the inside bottom of the bowl is curved slightly. So what you are seeing around the outer part of the bottom interior is the lower walnut ring. The very center of the interior is a little deeper, so the bottom maple layer is partially exposed. I hope that explains it. (The bottom of the bowl is hollowed somewhat to accept the jaws of the lathe chuck.)

Good job Charlie ! Now your on your way to doing some segmented turning.
There’s a couple of really good books I’m reading the 1st one I would get is the Art of Segmented Turning by Malcolm Tibbetts and the second one is Woodturning with Ray Allen.. Great Books!!!!

CharlieM1958,Nice turning Charlie! I was kinda hoping to see some square corners on the bowl, either at the top or bottom! Maybe on the next one? Congratulations on a nice bowl!

Ken, after years of learning how to round the corners on my square projects, now I’ve got to figure out how to square the corners on my round projects. I can’t win! :-)

Charlie, within such a short period you have acquired good skill at turning. This layered bowl is very nice.

wow, I saw the cat in the hat right off too. Looks like a nice bowl. How big is it? Are the layers 4/4 stock? You are in trouble; turning is addicting – keep this up and you will be our next trifern..
