Birthday gift to a friend, Purpleheart and Bloodwood segmented bowl with lid (also checkout the purpleheart dots) they are Miller Dowls that works great as long as you drill and install them before turning… and yes they come in Purpleheart.

Wow, that’s a beautiful segmented vessel. Really attractive, Larry. I hope your friend keeps it out of the sunlight to maintain all that color. Nice work!

Stunning Larry. Really like the finish on this one… beautiful! I had no idea you could get dowels in woods like purpleheart… interesting. Thanks.

Those are 2 or my favorite woods to work with. The design and craftsmanship are really great.
I hope your friend values it accordingly.

How hard was that to turn? I heard purpleheart is hard to turn.

Sorry about the delay, been locked in the shop trying to finish Christmas gifts. On segmented turning it isn’t bad because of the grain direction, but on the base it can be a little rough. hope to post some new pics soon, I have found some great ideas.
