This is my second segmented bowl. It is 12 inches wide and 7 inches tall. I Used figured Maple, genuine Mahogany, Bloodwood, and Zebrawood. It was challenging, and I made some mistakes along the way but was definitely a good learning project. Overall, I think it came out pretty good. I used books by Dale Nish (Ray Allen) and Malcolm Tibbetts for references and used the Segmented bowl software by Bill Kandler. Thanks for looking.

Nice work and I agree with the guys above if this is your second attempt your 3rd attempt will have to be a 12-15 ring segment with multiple beauty rings cause that’s what it going to take to top this.

Thanks for sharing keep it up

Everyone,
Thanks for all the nice comments. Segmented turning is challenging, time consuming, but very addictive.
