My friend, Ron Smith, is a very good segmented bowl maker/turner. A while back he asked if I would help him make a bowl that he was wanting to do. He brought me some wood and patterns for the animals he wanted to use on the bowl and wanted to see if I thought I could cut them with my scroll saw. The hardest part of cutting them was having him watch me the whole time. But we had a great time in the shop and he got what he wanted. He just sent me these pictures of his finished product.

Very unique usage of two totaly diffeent technics – turning and scrolling. I must admit , I had on my mind such technic mix also.
