This is segmented in that it is two pieces.Each is turned separately as a bowl, of sorts, then they are glued up into one piece. It is about 9” in diameter and 4 1/2” high. Wall thickness is too thick at about 3/16”. This one is cherry, stained with red sedona, then sanded so that most of the stain is gone. Finish is rattle can lacquer.

Comments and critiques are all welcome.

I think you did a swell job and fantastic of lining up the grain also.

I have only turned Cherry once and loved it. Hopefully I can get some more in the future and teach the vets like me how nice it is to use

It looks like a Flying Saucer for sure,
and a very well finished one at that.
