First attempt at segmented turning using maple and walnut to make a chalice. Next two are photos of another small lidded bowl of black walnut with a base of blackwood. Larger segmented bowl using walnut and maple was created as a demonstration at the Novi MI “Rockler Woodwoking Store’s ” VIP Night where I teach pen and bowl turning and was later completed with an inlay of a rose in the bottom. I attempted to buff the bowl and learned what type of buffing pad NOT to use as I promptly destroyed the finish using a new buffing machine. I discovered too late that the buffs that came on the machine were for metal working.Thats the reason it is still mounted to the faceplate. I’ll redo the finish in warmer weather. Live and learn. Thanks for looking at my first attempts at segemnted turning. And remember:
