3rd bowl segmented maple

hello all, this is the third bowl for me, I decided to try a segmented.
Its Maple with a walnut bottom. I am still learning on this thing and realized I should have screwed this to the faceplate from the get go. It flew of the chuck 3 times and destroyed the bottom tennon so I screwed what was left of it to the faceplate and completed it.
but here it is.



Thanks for looking.

From all the research and reading I've done the recommendation is to start with a faceplate and a scrap peice to use as a buffer for segmenteded turning. The bowl looks great, it has a real pleasing form even though there were some hiccups along the way.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

That was my problem. I paid no attention to the mounting. I just simply assumed the chuck could hold it. Now I know better. Yep the bottom has a hole in it, it is plugged now! It is my third bowl and first segmented. I think it turned out well considering. I actually figured this thing would fly apart on me before I could finish it!

Very nice but be careful, segmenting is a slippery slope that will draw you into the vortex for ever. Just be sure to visit the family once in a while. Nice job.

Nice sequence of pics Slick.
Looks like it shaped up pretty nice. Do you have any more pics?

Ditto - I'd like to see more pix of the finished bowl, it looks great.

One thing (out of many!) I don't understand, why doesn't a tenon in the chuck work for segmented turning when it would be fine for the same size piece non-segmented?

That is a good question Duncan, anyone know? Is it because the glue lines make for harder turning and more catches?

It is due to the bottom ring being open. In segmenting you typically turn a rabit in the bottom ring from the inside. Then you put a disc in and glue the next ring over it. This secures the disc to the bottom but leaves the disc about 1/4 inch above the part that sits on the table. I'll post a pic tomorrow if you like.

Thanks, now I'm dangerously interested ... could be the slippery slope into segmented turning!

In this specific case, though, I don't see that slicksqueegie approached it that way -- the disk of walnut appears to be glued to the bottom ring of maple segments before any turning (rabbet or other) has been performed. Wouldn't a tenon in that walnut disk be as secure as any other walnut tenon?

this is true Duncan, It is one solid piece of walnut glued to the bottom ring. I turned a recess in the walnut first then glued it to the glued up rings (being very careful to center it)
turning the outside was a breeze, however the inside is what threw it out of the chuck so many times very scary! It blew out the recess the final time so I screwed it to the faceplate. Then after finishing I sawed it off and sanded the bottom.
