Nice looking bowl. I like the suttle look of the open segments.

I really like the color combinations and the silky oak has beautiful grain patterns.

Nice design Sam. On a combined piece like this, at 300mm, do you have to be concerned with crossgrain expansion?

A wonderful piece! (as usual)
I’m curious about how you handled all of those void spaces around the bowl…... left open, I can see endless CHIPOUT…... Did you fill the voids with a substance that would make it through the Turning process, then dissolve it for sanding, etc.??... How did you do it?
COOL very COOL piece!

My friend Joe, patience is the key. I glued the 48 pieces of open segmented in two rows, piece by piece and row by row. The third level was glued outside and ready to take place in once. It was turned to the shape as you saw it, no filling, no dissolving after. easy!!!Eric, thank you for the comment.Larry, I like your RED hat. With that great smile, is it a sign for forgiveness?

Grumpy, yellow PVA was used in this project. I use the same glue all the time and I have no any problem.I started turning the bowl after only 3 hours because I could not wait for the next day. The surfaces had to be clean and in one level.Thanks for every body for your comments.
