Segmented Walnut Bowl

This walnut and maple segmented bowl was assembled and turned in my shop using a variety of tools including a table saw, drum sander and of course my lathe. It measures 9.5 inches tall and about 11 inches wide at the widest point. There are 248 pieces of wood glued together with Titebond Original and it is finished with Generals Woodturners Finish. After 6-7 coats of finish, it was buffed to a smooth finish.

thanks for all the nice comments. I’ve been turning for about over 8 years and got started in segmented last year. It’s a lot of fun.
