These are 3 open segmented bowls, the first two are 48 segment rings 21 rings high, the last one is 50 segment rings 25 rings high. Also the first are 15”D x 7”H, the third is 16”D x 8”H. They are enjoyable to build but very difficult to turn.

Those are awesome to say the least. I’ve never done much turning but I’m curious about the process used to accomplish this. Very nice effect.

Wood + glue + saw + patience + talent = works of art.
Fantastic projects.

Forgot to mention lathe, chisels, sandpaper, finishing etc, but you know what I mean.
