Gorgeous Piece!

Do you have a special jig for cutting the angles?

I can’t even wrap my head around how you made this amazing and beautiful piece. Really impressive workmanship.

Zbilja si ju ’’zakucal’’ ovaj put. Vidi se da drva ne manjka iako ostavljaš praznine – valjda se tak nekaj i uštedi na materijalu. Nemam riječi – samo tako dalje me radi ljubomornim.

That is a really beautiful bowl Bambi, Great job mate.
I’ve been going to try an open segmented piece for a while now but haven’t got the nerve to do it.
I really must try.
Thank you for sharing and congratulations on the Top 3.

Hello Bambi,

I have been giving the construction of your bowl a good hard looking at, and it is as Gerry posted its a bit hard to get your head around.
Even after looking at each section there is not a piece out of place anywhere.

Now that covers the construction, so lets now pretend we are Evil Kneivel and try to turn it

Do you have a bullet proof screen you work behind? (something like a bomb disposal technician might use?)

I think will leave the process to Bob Wemm to tryout, as its way too technical and scary for the likes of me.
I think thats why I have never bought a lathe as well!
As I might just toss a piece of wood from here to Kalbarri from it!

A very well deserved DT3!!

-- Regards Rob
