Here is a Walnut and Maple Segmented Bowl/Vase.When I first pulled this off the lathe, I showed it to my mother in law. Well…...She did not want to let it go. haha
I had to convince her it needed more finish on it in order to get it back. Needless to say, this is now her bowl. She is 83 and I spoil her a little. (At 83 she deserves to be spoiled).

7 inch Diam X 4 1/2 inch Tall. 112 pieces. Sanded to 400 grit, heated Tung Oil first 2 coats, then 4 more coats of Old Masters Tung Oil/Varnish with 0000 steel wool in between coats. Still have to wax this after finish sets up a little harder.

Please leave all comments and suggestions/criticism. I am always trying to learn and your comments help.

Thank You for looking.

This is beautiful. How long (how many hours) does it take to make a bowl like this?

scrappy,
Great job! Good thing you didn’t put it in my hands. I would not have let you, pull that old, I need it back for more finishing work. I’d have told you I would just finish it myself and thank you for all the previouis work. Really a great looking project! Keep on keeping on.

Sincerely,
Ken McGinnis

OK Scrappy I’ve met your Mother in Law and I agree. She is a wonderful person and knows quality and beauty BUT I think I should have it. That way I could look at it every day and dream of what I could do if I just could.
Great job

when I see this and think about all the little pieces I throw away it makes me want to hang my head in shame. Great talent, and loads of patience.

Scrappy, I have never had a go at segmenting, but I sure can appreciate the work, skill & finishing that has gone into this piece. It will stand any scrutiny from any angle. Great selection and match up of timber & design, realy great job

Thanks for the great comments everyone. I really enjoy turning and to have someone latch onto it before it is even done, well that just amazes me.

FloridaArt, I have about 8 hours into this bowl.

Thanks again.

Wonderful bowl. You have advanced so far that all I see of you is a small dust trail. Keep up the great work.
