Just another segmented bowl

I have had this bowl started for at least 6 months, I had 3 rings made then set it aside where they were just collecting dust. So this week I decided to make a couple more rings to finish the glue-up. Got it all glued up and started turning this morning and finished it with 5 coats for friction finish. The finished size is 11 1/2 inches across and 3 1/2 inches deep. This is the largest thing I can turn on my lathe. Wood used is red oak and mahogany.

Nice colours and finish in the bowl Weldon! That looks like a lot of accurate cutting and must be fun gluing up.

This bowl is a beautiful piece and I like the pattern very much.
