Is this a segmented bowl turned on the lathe?

Sure is Tim – Lots of pieces. I think segmented work is more like a little wood and lots of glue haha.

Both pieces are very nice, good color and shape. Segmented turning can be addictive.

what tools did you use for this? I am new to the lathe and want to know how to do this.

Aaron, I use a lot of different tools but mostly a lathe for turning, but I start by cutting segments on the table saw, glueing the segments into rings, the rings on top of each other and finally mounting the rings on the lathe. I have a drum sander in addition to the lathe and table saw I use. I’m using a Shopsmith so I have a disk sander on the SS for fine tuning the segments, a jointer, Bandsaw and a miter saw for some of the work. It really takes a shop full of tools – which is how I justify my shop to my Wife—LOL. If you are really interested in Segmented turning., I encourage you to check for Segmented Wood Turning – lots of video there. Good luck.
