I’ve made Ringmaster bowls a little larger than this but this is my largest segmented bowl. It’s Walnut with a Maple design ring. It’s 10 5/8” in diameter and 5 5/8” tall. Five coats of GF Wood Bowl Finish wiped on completed it. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Andre, I agree but I’ll have to admit that when I was scheming this one up 10 inches didn’t seem so big at the time….

LOL! Have maxed out the Dia. of my little 12” lathe a few times, great reminder of watching balance and speed!

@splintergroup – Thank You but now I’m confused….even the base is segmented, so aren’t all the exposed toolings side grain?

Sorry Dave, commenting by thinking out loud!
I was considering the assembly, end grain glue joints, and my ingrown fear of these seams breaking apart if/when a tool catches an edge (even with the overlap).

I’d be cringing the whole time 8^)

Now if the pieces were run radially, I wouldn’t worry about strength, I’d fear the tearout.

I’ve done both ways making round frames using the router table (and was cringing the whole time!) Haven’t tried it on a lathe.

Ah…gotcha….and for the record, I Was worried about catches, hence the fat side walls…...I quit while I was ahead.

By the way, I love all your G & G arts & crafts projects, A&C my favorite era!
