My first segmented bowl, two wood types: White Maple, and Eucalyptus. The Eucalyptus lumber was very bad, had wormholes and cracks, I barely made it water tight.

I like the color contrast. I’ve heard of dark woods that will “bleed” into lighter woods but have never seen it, it’s actually kind of a cool effect. what are the dimensions?

The dimensions are: Diameter: 20cm, Height: 12cm.I was kind of trying to avoid that effect of “bleeding” but since the white maple is a bit softer than the Eucalyptus, it creates a kind of drag on the scraper knives when turning, and this is the result. Lesson I learned, even though the contrast is great and desirable, these two types of wood do not match nice for turning.

Very nice segmented bowl. Worm holes give it character. Most bowls hold hard objects so you don’t worry about leaks in a wood bowl.it is a stunning design the way you laid out the segments too.Thanks for sharing

I use at least three layers of base coat (transparent – no gloss). Then after fine sanding (800-1000 grid sandpaper) each coat, I spray one or two thick coats of glossy lacquer. I do all of this while the peace is on the lathe, so it’s easy to fine sand and polish it. That is it, more coats more shine and smoothness.

Very nice bowl! the worm holes give it the character of Mother Nature and enhances your project. I like the shape of the segments after turning. It give the appearance that you sliced them on an angle. I have to make a segmented bowl someday. I reaslly like the looks of yours!!
