This is my second segmented bowl and I’m much more pleased with this one. I took the time to graph out my segments since the first one I turned was all guess work, and it was time well spent. This bowl is made up of 145 total pieces, of walnut, maple veneer strips, and a solid maple plug center. I’ve finished with walnut oil and will Beall buff once it’s dry. Also my first bowl finished on my homemade cole jaws, very pleased.

Love the contrasting work.
Great job.
