Several years ago I tried my hand at turning segmented wooden bowls. These two bowls were made for my mom and my mother-in-law. They were made from walnut, maple and purple heart. Both moms were very pleased and continue to keep them displayed. There is a lot of tedious work in making these so it was a great novelty project but not one that I’ve repeated in years.

I really like the second bowl. The pattern is very defined and set off. Good work!

getting those points to meet up is the rea work on these type bowls. Yep it’s work, but the results are terrific

Great work!!! I like your wood selection and design. I really like the feature ring in the second bowl and the star patterns just make the bowl grab you. Thanks for sharing.

I love segmented turning, so I loved your bowls very much, good designs, good selection of wood, good finish, good man and lucky moms. By the way, the second bowl has got my number 1 vote.
