I had a small surgery Wensday and have to stay out of the shop for a few days. That has allowed me time to began catching up on posting here. This is one of the larger segmented pieces I’ve made and it is the fourth one like this. Appx. 12” X 4” plus the base bowl is about 3” high. The assembly is actually two bowls made of cherry with walnut accents connected by a small wooden home-made bearing glued into 3/8” deep X 1 1/2” holes drilled in their bases. The people who have these like to show off how they spin. Fun to make and fun to show.

Just checked out your 3 new posts – all beautiful! I recently acquired a lathe and just finished turning my first wood piece since high school. I already have my plan in place for finishing, but I am always curious about what techniques and products others use; what did you finish with?

Hello Chris,
I most always use the same finish. It is 3 coats of SealCoat from Zinsser Co. with bowl on lathe and sanded between coats. After remounting and finishing bottom. Sand and use 1 or 2 coats spray poly. Shines nice and is hard as a rock.

You sure don’t do simple. You have a very nice eye for detail and design. Great wood selection! Nicely done.
