These are a couple of segmented bowls that I finally finished up this past weekend. The first one is a commissioned piece for the Forty et Eight Society, to be given away as a door prize representing Indiana, at the upcoming Great Lakes Promenade in June. It is 7-1/4” wide X 3-1/2” deep, and made up of 97 individual pieces of Walnut,Cherry,, and Maple. It is finished with several coats of WOP, The second bowl is 6-3/4” wide X 2- 5/8” deep, It contains 153 individual pieces of Cherry, Walnut, and Rock Maple. It is finished with several coats of BLO, and polished with a coat of Hut Crystal Coat This bowl was commissioned by my wife, who says, I fix all of your meals, and feed you, I would like to have a nice new bowl, end of story.

The small squares on the second bowl, are Bubinga.

Totally excellent Don, I like them both, but I think I like the second one the best. Gotta keep your lady happy and as you say, she keeps you going, so way to go.
Thanks for showing.

Great Job. Segmented woodturning is my favorite of all styles. You knocked this one out of the park!
