Three identical segmented bowls, maple with walnut rim and base. These are 8-inches in diameter and about 4-1/2-inches tall.

These were prepped and turned for a demonstration to promote segmented woodturning classes at our local Artisan Center.

Triplets... how long were they in Labor.

I confess … I cheated! All of the cutting was done in a single batch. One of the three was turned & finished prior to the demo so people could see what the end-product would look like. A second one was glued prior and mounted on a lathe ready to turn. The third was glued during the demo. I did a little gluing and a little turning during the demo … kept me busy!

Great work Gerry, love them., I’ve been turning for about a yr now. I’m ready & dying to try segmented turning. My mentor for turning suggested I learn to do regular bowls first. Kinda like learning to walk before running. I plan on making an easy sled and using the wedges to to them on a table saw. How do you do your cutting of the segments? Would love to hear your advice on this. Thx

How do you do your cutting of the segments?

I use a Wedgie Sled most of the time … quick, easy, and accurate. For more complex stuff (e.g. feature rings, floating bases, etc.) I use my miter saw with a sled/fence system that has a sliding stop …

These three bowls sure did turn out beautifully and I love the pattern that you used.
