So after getting my segment jig back in order, I feel more confident in making some bigger bowls. This one will be a salad bowl for my niece. She asked at Thanksgiving for a large bowl and I told her I have 3 drying out but it will be 6 months before they are ready. I decided to make her a segment bowl instead. I hope she will be pleased I did. Besides I was anxious to try a larger segment bowl anyway. It’s 12 1/2’’ in dia. and 5 1/4’’ tall. I hope it holds enough salad for her family. Finished with salad bowl finish. Made of Maple and Walnut.

Beautiful bowl Dave and very well done too! Segmented bowls are a lot of work, but it really pays off in the end.

Thanks Dave and htl.

Thanks Ivan. That could be a good name for it.

Thank you Larry.

Bob, it’s a great journey into these bowls. I’m hoping to keep on improving my designs in the future.

Thanks pottz. If and when you try one of these, have some king of jig to help along. It make all the difference in the world.

Thanks Mike. I agree and also the anticipation of actually seeing it turn little by little is amazing.

Thanks Tooch. I did hesitate on what dark wood to use at first but decided to go walnut.

Jerry, Thanks.

Thanks Anthony. It may be a little big for ice cream but they can always share the bowl.

Hi Tony. It has 184 pieces. The bottom is in 4 pieces also. I was considering tornado bowl but Nancy liked swirl better. I found out the more pieces in each ring results in many more intricate choices of designs. I already started cutting some strips up for the next one.

Good one Dave. You can get hooked on these but not a bad past time.
