Well, after 40 cutting boards, a segmented bowl seemed like the next logical step in my woodworking journey.

Watched the Malcom Tibbet’s video collection (Fantastic!!) and figured,...... an easy bowl like this should be within the realm of possibility. Turns out, really not that difficult but it is a bit time consuming, especially with all the glue up’s of the rings. Overall, I like how this came out and plan to do more.

This bowl is about 8 1/5 tall and 7 inches wide. Walnut, cherry and padauck. 10 coats of spray laquer.

Very nice vase! The lowest ring being in a different direction makes me wonder if you did this on purpose or if it was a mistake? Whichever, it gives this piece a bit of character!

I like this a lot! I keep talking myself out of such an undertaking from purely a time perspective. Great outcome though!
