A couple of weeks back I posted my first segmented piece.

Click for details

I have received a lot of positive comments on this bowl, everyone that comes in the house has something good to say about it…........ So when another member at another forum I use; posted a message looking for someone to turn him a bowl;;; I thought this was my chance to re-do my “slats bowl” ; And maybe see if I could correct some of the things I was not happy with on the first one.

As soon as the time will permit, I will be delivering this one to my forum friend, not far from me. I do think it will be just what he and his wife are looking for.

Although this one is a bit different, I do believe it to be much better than the first….. But Like it is often said, no turning is perfect.

Slats Bowl number Two 11” by 4”. Finish is Shellac.

Brian, It’s nice to revisit a piece, review & go again, my second last posting is a cut out variation of yours & I will be doing the same as you after Xmas.
This is a very nice piece, I haven’t had a go at this segmented work, but it obviously calls for precission cutting and assembly, (hey & thats before you start to turn it)
You say it’s finished in Shellac, did you seal it first if not how many coats of schellac? curious as it is a nice finish
I am sure your friend & his wife will be estatic this this one.
Have a nice Christmas & new year

Another fantastic bowl. Great design and turning. Love the finish also.

Those segmented turnings can get habit forming.

Keep it up.

What did you use to glue the layer with the spaces on with? Also did you have problems with the glue oozing out into the space? I have done several pieces with spaces, but have not been able to get the glue to not squeeze out.

Have your say...
