This is actually my first segmented bowl I ever turned, I had so much fun creating this project I became obsessed with segmented turning.
The woods I selected are Walnut, Ash, Sepele, and Padauk. Wall thickness 3/8 , 11 1/2” dia. and 8 1/2” High, finished off with tung oil

Very nice bowl. The feature ring looks complicated. I imagine cutting out all the segments at perfect angles to fit together is really challenging.

fancy for a first, so congrats..my only suggestion is to do a brickwork type pattern on your sapele? pieces. the tiny overlap is ok, but the eyes find a 1/2 overlap more readily appealing. That pattern has been a favorite since it came out in a book, and it has traveled well. Good job

Great choice for your first segmented project. Yes, they are addicting. I will look forward to more of your addiction.

On all my segmented bowls or vessels I use the floating bottom technique, just 3 small spots of glue takes care of any movement that may occur.
