Kinda got carried away with the pic. This is my first large segmented bowl. Cut the segments on my SCMS. They turned out almost perfect. I only had to sand the halves a little to line up for the circle. I really need a drum sander to make these though. I sanded the segment sides with a ROS but this doesn’t get them level as they should be. The top 2 rows are maple. The 3rd layer is oak and the 4-7 layers I’m not sure of. Might be cherry.
It took me about 2 1/2 days to make it as a lot of time was spent figuring and figuring out how to do it. It was a lot of fun to do. I used tips from several turners that made it easier. There are several jigs I have seen recently that I don’t have that would make these easier to build. Oh well maybe some day.
It is 12 1/2” od, 11 1/2” id at top, 7” h. It was finished with water based polyurethane.
