Segmented bowl made using Walnut, Sapele and Padauk. First try didn’t turn out perfect since only the outside ended up smooth. Candy bowl Christmas present for my grandma.

how wide were your segments when you cut them?
I draw my form out on graph paper so i can get an idea of how wide the segments need to be to get a solid wall. I’d also suggest taking a look at the program Woodturner Pro as a way to design your pieces.

I based what I did off of a plan I found on the internet, but I will have to try that program when I do another
