Project Information

Just finished with this Bowl. It consists of three rings of Hickory/Pecan with Maple diagonal pieces inserted, Two rings of Maple above and below the main rings, and the top and the bottom is made from Zebrawood. The pattern in the middle happened quite by mistake (while turning the original bowl it decided to fly off the lathe and ruin the bottom of the bowl. So what could I do, but to construct a new one, when I started turning again I found that the pattern was turning out to look pretty darn nice, so I finished the project and then sprayed several coats of Behlen clear Lacquer and when it was dry buffed it to the final state.

Great work.
I haven't worked with segmented turnings in so long it makes me want to do some. But Spring has sprung and fishing and gardening are going to take precedent over wood working until late fall.

I really like this bowl…...... a lot.
When I figure out how you got the diagonal inserts in it I will try one myself.

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice segmented bowl, did you use the indexing on the lathe for the diagonals, and inlay them, as I notice that they don't go all the way thru. The zebra wood adds a nice touch, and really sets this bowl off.

Rockbuster: the diagonal pieces do go all the way through. It doesn't show real good in the pictures. I would like to take credit for the idea,however I can't as I found a web site where the gentleman was kind enough to show the steps he took to make the cuts. I believe it was wwww.woodturning online.com

Thanks for viewing the post and all the great comments everybody had to say.
