FYI this is best posted under Projects thread. Looks good and even better this way. I don’t know what your are using to post but most photo programs on computers, pads and phones have adjustments you can make for orientation, lighting and color.

For some reason (that I have not researched), sometimes when you take a picture on an iphone or ipad (not sure it if applies to Android) and you upload it to LJ, the website doesn’t interpret the orientation data correctly. A quick way to fix it is before you upload an image, go into the photo viewer on the iphone or ipad, open the image and tap edit. Select the crop option, make any minor adjustment and save. That seems to fix the problem. After uploading I usually hit preview to see if I need to go back, fix them and upload them again.

Nice Bowls. Post them as a project.

Is that what that type of project is called (segmented turning / segmented blanks)? When you glue together similar sized blocks for turning? And what is a wdgie slide? I’m assuming for a table saw?
Nice job by the way, makes me think I need to start working on bowls.

Very nice turning! Your glue-ups really seem to have gone well! I’ve always wanted to try a segmented piece but gluing is only my second least favorite thing to do in the shop after sanding. I make such a mess and I fear dozens of pieces sliding around as I frantically try to clamp them in place! Well done!

Also, I really like Chechen. It’s got great depth and color. I’ve got a few boards with some figure that I’m saving for just the right project. Wenge is a bit of a pain to use but it’s well worth the effort.
