This bowl is 8 inches tall and 6 inches round. Has over 400 pieces of padauk, maple, walnut and cherry. This was my third segmented bowl.

Very nice! How long did it take to assemble and turn?

Sweet. I was wondering the same thing as Tom. 400 pieces must take a while to assemble.

Very attractive turning—I really like the segmentation.

Thanks all. Had about a weeks worth of work in it off and on. I think it took me longer to figure how to cut the pieces then to turn it on the lathe.

Extremely well done. Your segments are very tight. I like the feature ring. What is your technique for finishing the work?

Gorgeous bowl! Like the design especially the rim and the middle ring has attractive patterns. Outstanding turning piece!
