Red Oak and Brazilian Cherry 9 1/2” D x 4” H 130 pieces Wipe on Poly with Hut wax finish

My back started feeling better after a week so I snuck into the shop to make this Red Oak segmented bowl accented with Brazilian Cherry. Finished it today and will try for one more before the surgery next Tuesday. My wife loved this one too but we can’t keep everything I make!

As always, comments and critiques welcomed.

Nice One!! A segmented bowl is definitely on the to do list.
Hope the surgery goes well and you make a full recovery.
Best Wishes

That’s wonderful, I love the contrast and wood grain. The view from the top is mesmerizing!

Very nice wood combination and form. Glad to hear the back is better and good luck with the surgery. I’m with Dan That view from the top is wild.

Thanks very much for your nice comments and concern for me. I am having a knee replacement done on my left knee which has been giving me trouble for years. I hope all goes well and I am pain free in my knee in a couple months!

A small note to add about the bowl, the top ring makes the bowl look thick and it is like an optical illusion because it rolls under on the inside and the rest of the bowl is just under 1/4” thick and it is surprisingly light!

Update on this bowl: My knee surgery was a success. This bowl was presented to the Doctor who did my knee replacement in appreciation! He immediately grasped that this was a segmented bowl and asked if I cut all the individual pieces!
