I made this for the Frank Lloyd Wright design fun going on in the blogs. It’s also an exercise in playing around with my new bandsaw. The two kind of went hand in hand.

There’s a lot of rock maple in here, along with walnut, mahogany, cherry, osage orange, olivewood, redwood, bloodwood, zebrawood, paduak.. I think that’s it.. :)

It’s my first attempt at complicated segmenting so obviously I still have a lot to learn. It also was a little tricky to turn because I have to turn it without removing it from the chuck so the front and back are cut in the same go.

It’s about 6.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall. Built up a polish till it felt like glass.

For fun, I put it up for sale in my etsy shop. We’ll see if anybody wants it!

Great looking bowl Lis, where did you get the design? Looks like a great way to use up left over woods.

Hi Lis, That is certainly a different kind of segmenting than I am doing! I have to say that I like this and will be trying this later.

I will advise you to sharpen your turning chisels more often because it looks like there is some evidence of tear outs on the bottom of the bowl in pix 6. A sharp chisel will minimize that. That is one of many reasons I like doing segmented turning, no end grains to tear out!

This is really beautiful, Lis! I love seeing it. The colors are beautiful and it definitely has that art deco ‘flavor’. Great piece! :)

I agree on the Art Deco flare and a well done piece. It does hurt my head though trying to figure out how you fit all those pieces together so well! Great job!

I designed it based off of a set of window panes I found made by Frank Lloyd Wright. The idea was that if you look at it from the top, you can clearly see the “panes” and if you look at it from any other angle it just looks kind of weird and overwhelming. I added a whole lot of mixed woods to add to that overwhelming sensation… I wanted it to feel like one of those windows that has so many colours you just stare at it.

You do not see tearout, but my novice bandsaw skills. :-) I also made most of this before I figured out how to calibrate the thing properly. But hey, we live and learn.

Picaso would be proud! your patience level is obviously far greater than mine for putting this all together and making it work. Very beautiful job.

Wow! I’ve done a few bowls from glue-ups, but you’ve taken it to the extreme. Fantastic job, Lis.

Cool, I can’t imagine how long that took you to glue up.
