Blanket Design Bowl

I have been working on feature rings for my segmented turnings … this one is based on a design found in Southwestern Indian blankets.

This piece is 10” in diameter, 7” high, and is comprised of black walnut, maple, and alder.

The bottom has a floating disk (instead of a solid base). Though I have never had one of my solid bases crack, wood moves and cracking is a distinct possibility. The floating disk is designed to avoid cracking, and affords the opportunity to do more with the bottom than just a plain surface … it isn’t obvious in the photo, but this disk is actually a little raised panel.

Looks great, I know a lot of work goes into a glue up and turning of a piece like this, great work.

You’re telling me! I have no idea how much time I have invested in it, but it sure kept me out of trouble for a while.

Greg turn, a real beauty!!!!!! Are you using table saw or miter saw for cutting your segs?

Are you using table saw or miter saw for cutting your segs?

Both. The pieces that make up the blanket design were mostly cut on the miter saw, with thin strips cut on the table saw. The assembled design panels were cut to 18-degrees on each side on the miter saw. I use a fence with an adjustable stop block on the miter saw …

The pieces above & below the feature ring were all cut on the table saw using a Wedgie Sled …

Very nice work. The feature ring is beautiful. I know what it takes to do something like that.
