This is the first time I’ve turned a segmented bowl, Its Maple and Mahogany with 12 segments at 15 degrees.Using my new table saw sled made it so simple to cut all the segments and looking at what other people do for tricks and tips on doing it made it really easy to make.I cant wait to make more i have so much scraps of wood to use.I love this web sight its so cool to see what people are making from all over the world!

This piece is very nice, especially for your first segmented turning. I don’t have a lathe yet, but will one day and this has inspired me to make it soon. My step-father worked for H&B/ Louisville Slugger company and was the last person to turn bats by hand for the pros. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

Great segmented bowl, you really have the shop setup for doing it right, from the table saw with sled, to
the thlckness sander, to the lathe and chuck, but mainly the patient and excellent craftsman who operates
all these tools. Thank you for sharing and it looks like you will have many more happy years playing in your
