Don’t know if I am doing things right just yet, I am trying to post a picture of a segmented bowl that I made for my step daughters wedding a year ago. Just trying to get the hang of it, as I have some other projects that I would like to post in the future Hope that this comes out OK.

Wow. I second the blog request. Obviously, your struggle with picture posting is because you devote your time to developing more worthwhile skills!

Thanks for all of the nice comments, the bowl was not that difficult to build,most of it was done in plain segmented turning (12 segments @15 degrees) The Indian Blanket Design feature ring, is best described by getting a hold of Malcolm Tibbetts book called “The Art of Segmented Wood Turning”, go to chapter 9,page 73 and look up “JOHN”S TURNING” This man is a master of segmented turning, and he explains and shows pictures, of how to do this much much better than I could ever do in a blog. I tried a few practice pieces first using some white & yellow pine, figured that way if it failed, I woulden’t be out of using my good wood. It can get a little scary ripping the thin strips, but there is also a place in his book that he explains how to do this. This book can also be found at most local librarys. Once I learned to do this, it was a fun project,a little time consuming, with a lot of glue work, but well worth it when I saw the looks on the brides and grooms faces.

You may be new to posting pictures, but my guess is you are anything but new to turning. Great looking piece.
Well done. Looking forward to more.

Hi Branch: The woods in this bowl are Walnut,Cherry, Brazialian Cherry,& Curly Maple, Best my memory serves me is that it is approx 10 3/4” wide and 4 1/2 deep. The finish is a couple of coats of mineral oil with a coat or two of lathe running rubbed butcher block oil over it. I don’t have a big lathe, (Rikon model 37-100 12” over bed and 16” between centers, about all you want to handle on a project like this. Don’t have a large set of Cole Jaws, so I used the Longsworth Chuck that I made a few years earlier, It only flew out of it once during the process,was just lucky enough to catch it in mid-air before disaster.
