Those are beautiful bowls. I really like the scallop effect. Nice wood combination as well. I would be interested in learning more about your technique. Thanks for sharing Tom.

Tom, these are fantastic! Like Trifern, I’d love to learn more about the process. I’m in the process of getting a full size lathe and would love to learn segmented bowls.

I love these designs. Thanks for posting.
