Very Nice! I agree with crowie. For us novices, it would be great if you can give a brief description of the construction.

Once again, beautiful.

Crowie, RiBrian, PcDubs here is a brief description of construction. First I rough turned the bowl to 25 mm wall thickness with a flat base on the bowl, then I cut the bowl up into 12 equal segments. I then glue these segment onto a flat dummy disk base in the lathe chuck, using the dividing head in the lathe to space them out evenly, when glue has dried I turn the tops of the segments flat at what would be the lip of the bowl. I then make up a segmented ring and glue this to the top of the segments to form the lip of the bowl.
Then I turn out a 100 mm in diameter from the inside of the base of the bowl to the depth of the base of the segments. I then make and glue in a 100 mm plug into the center of the bowl. When the glue has dried I turn the inside of the bowl and as much of the out side of the bowl that I can. See photo 1
Then part off the bowl from the dummy disk base and finish turning the outside of the bowl leaving a flat surface for the base.
Then then make and glue on a base see photos 2,3
Hope this helps I’m not very good at this sort of thing explaining in writing how things are made.
Happy turning and lets know how you get on.
