I finally made an open segment turning. This is actually my second open segment bowl. The first one did not turn out as well. I learned the process by watching “Earl’s Small Segmenting Shop” on YouTube. Very informative videos. This turning is 14” in diameter, about 7” tall and had 36 segments per ring. Made from maple, cherry, and walnut. Finished with Danish oil and spray lacquer.

I agree with the other comments. Absolutely beautiful, great job and congratulations.

Love the colour combinations.

I need to try this process one day. LOL

Thanks for sharing.

Well done.
