this started out as a cutting board, it ended up too small and too thin, so I decided to try making a bowl on the Ringmaster, just to see what would turn up, I forgot to take pictures before I started, so I put it all back into position for the pictures, then stacked the rings, gluing one at a time, and placing it in my press until the glue set, it came out with a quite interesting pattern, I still have a lot of sanding to do yet, but seeing as it is now spring time, I have a lot of outside work to do, so I will get to the sanding as time allows. the wood is walnut, birdseye maple, and cherry.

notottoman, I honestly don’t know how much force can be applied, but I suspect I could crush the bowl, and probably the rest of the press, a friend gave that to me many years ago, and I thought I would build a fruit press with it, then I thought I would use it to keep boards alligned when gluing up a panel, but it works better as a bowl press.
it is amazing what kind of pattern that emerges after trying this, I wasn’t even sure things would line up. lol
thanks for looking.

Well, I guess that’s one way to do a segmented bowl. Very nice. I might give it a try at some point.

smitty ,

i cut and pasted all the http stuff you wrote into my space ,
and put an exclamation point ( ! ) at the begining ( tight )
and the end ( tight ) to each one ,

like this
your stuff – http://blah/blah/blah/jpg.234

my addition – ! http://blah/blah/blah/jpg.234 !
the exclamations must be tight to it ,
( i just did it here on my toy http thing ,
and it thought it was a picture ,
and only showed a blank space ,
so i moved them away one space ) .

and the pictures pop right up !

hope that helps .
you can go here ,
