Awesome work, those bowls cool. I have turned a few segmented bowls. They are a lot of fun. You are only limited by your imagination when you design them, that is what makes them fun, I think. The box is nice too.

Being fairly new to turning myself (only a few years) these projects are very impressive. I love the work. Next time, (for the benefit of those of us who are unaware how to do this) you should post some photos of the whole procedure. From the cutting of the blanks to the glueing to the turning. I, for one, would love to see how you do it.
Great work.
Ken

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Nice Job HH,
Segmented bowls are on my list. I just have to make up a cutting sled for the table saw.

Really nice work on those bowls and box. Do we have to wait until next winter to see more?

Hey Hawk,
Check out www.miterset.com Tell me if you think that would help in making your segments.

Very nice job on the bowls. They look great.

Gene, that miterset looks like a great item. Do you have one and if so what do you think of it?

John,

I purchased the Miterset about a month ago. I think it is a great tool. I was concerned about the holes and pegs but the pegs are tapered and should not loosen over time.
I am very very pleased with it and it is very easy to use. The shipping was extremely fast! 2 days from CA to VA.
For ~$36 vs. $125 for a new accurate miter gage, I couldn't pass it up.....

I would buy it again!! Just my 2 cents.....

Fred

Fred, thanks for your experience with it. I was kinda thinking the same thing. Way cheaper if it works as advertised. Glad to hear it does! I think I will add this to my list. Man I have a long list!

Great work.

I'm with him on this one. How the heck do you make something like that? Not that I would have the courage to do it, but the details would start the blood flowing for something similar....maybe.

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com
