Now I could do that on a scroll saw…but a lathe….really nice work. Sure would like to see how you do that.

When you say open segmented, you do mean open. I have started segmented turning, but keep gettingsidetracked. What rpm do you turn a bowl like this, and how many attempts did it take to get this result?Thank you for sharing>

I have had bowls come apart on the lathe before and they were made of a solid segmented construction. I dont know how this bowl could be turned when made of this style. How about a blog or video a show and tell of sorts…
Thanks for sharing

I duck tape the out side of of the bowl then fill the inside with building foam. After setting over night, I turn and sand the inside at about 1100 RPM. I then tape the inside with duck tape saving what foam is left. I then turn the outside at the same speed cutting the wood and the duck tape with my tool starting with the top edge. So one ask about a video pictures!!!! This one was the third try – No way to know which one will make it. ( I put a 45 degree chamfer on the edges of the segement which helps will the tool not hitting a square edge)
