One of you LJ’s made a comment about not thinking a pattern thru to the end and this is a perfect example of NOT working things out before you start.
Most of my Segmented things have had 12 piece rings and I decided to go for 36 this time because of the size, no problem with that though.
Then I decided on the pattern, WHOOPS a 7 piece pattern doesn’t work when there are only 36 pieces in the ring. By this time I had cut all the pieces and I wasn’t going to throw them out.
The next problem arose after I’d glued the rings together and that was—to maintain the pattern the pieces couldn’t overlap, creating a straight join and thus weaken the whole thing.
To overcome this I “PURPOSELY” aligned the rings just a little bit out of line to give a little bit of overlap.
“THAT’s MY EXCUSE ANYWAY”
The bowl is 13.5 in wide and 6 in tall, made from Jarrah and Tasmanian Oak.
Finished with Hampshire sheen, and Shellawax Glow.

Thanks for looking and C & C welcome.

Bob.

I have to agree with Julian and Tony. Beautiful workmanship, and comments 9 to 12 will agree with 1, 2, and 3.
Excellent!

I like your excuse and I’m with you. If you haven’t said anything it would be hard to notice. A great looking bowl either way.

35 divided by 7 is 5, with one leftover. I don’t see the problem. Nor do I see anything wrong with this bowl.

I’ll bet there is more than one master piece due to some kind of mistake. This is an excellent bowl.

Gorgeous work, Bob. Sometimes the best work comes from deviating from the plan and just making it work. I’d love to have a “whoops” turn out like this!

Bob – when an artist presents a piece to the public, it is his creation with or without percieved mistakes and still his creation
This one happens to be great !

Thanks guys for the comments.
I suppose the worst part about this is that I know that the mistakes are there, and it annoys me that I made them.

But I have to admit that it looks good from a distance.

Thankjs again.
