Very nice. I am working on a couple segmented bowls for the first time. Had no idea the amount of time it takes to make these until I started making a few

Branch, I love all your bowls but your segmented ones are the best. It has been awhile since you have posted a segmented project. This one is up to your standard!! It is beautiful!! My only negitive comment that to my likeing the finial is to large, I prefer the more delicate style.

Thanks for sharing

Very nice Branch. Colourful and eye-catching.
I don’t have the band-saw but even if I did I don’t think I’d have the patience (or talent lol).

hi thank s for all your comments much appreciate

michael 1 good lock with your first segment turning they take a bit of time but the are fun to make looking forward to see your finished piece

sedcokid you may be right about the finial being to big i might put it on the lath and turn it down a little

murch the segments were cut on the table saw not a band saw if you are interested in making a segment turning you should have a go the are not all that hard to make
