Two popcorn bowls made from African mahogany, hard white maple and Baltic birch plywood. The segments were cut on a table-saw sled I made from information gleaned from the web. I used my cnc to rough rout the base and the Baltic birch rings.
The segmented rings were passed through a drum sander and then vacuum pressed together. The vacuum bag did a great job of keeping the rings concentric, however they had to be adjusted to get the pattern I was looking for.

Thanks for browsing.

I really like the bowls and appreciate all the photos you took of the process. A segmented bowl is on my list for 2019.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the comments, the bowls are a lot of fun to do. I would like to try some staved bowls too.

I love your technique, beautiful results!

The 45 degree wedge is a nice tip, I can’t count how many small cutoffs (the keeper end) went flying away when they got caught by the blade….
