This is a bowl from a board using a double box joint design. I have wanted to try a BFB for awhile and did one using a dovetail design so I thought a box joint should work just as well. Made of walnut, maple and yellowheart. Measures 11”D x 4”H>

Wow, that looks great. I’m not sure of the build steps, though… do you make two bowl from a board blanks in different species, then make finger joints on the blocks before turning?

Very interesting. I’ve looked at a lot of segmented pieces recently, but this is unique. Did you use an Incra jig, or something similar.
Cheers

Excellent looking bowl. I’d certainly be showing that one off.

Thanks for posting the links to your You Tube vids. Very informative. I may make my first attempted at segmented turning based on your design.
Cheers
