4 hour segmented bowl.

I needed to make a quick wedding gift for a good friend and I didn't have a lot of time. The first night I cut and glued together all the rings and ran them through the drum sander. Then I glued and stacked the rings in my home made ring press. The next night I did the inlace/epoxy ring in the bottom, turned it and added friction polish for the finish. The final thickness is about 1/8th inch. There are 7 rings with 9 segments each totaling 64 segments, 1 piece of quilted maple for the bottom and the inlay I did around the top rings.
Please enjoy.

Hell, I'd get married all over again for that piece!

p

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

LMAO. 47 & never married. Been with the LOML for 13 years though. Good thing I can make my own wedding gifts w/o the wedding.


Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the compliments. I haven't done any turning in several months. It was really fun to get back behind the spinny thingy.

Very impressive

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Bill --

Without those little details, a bowl like this would "merely" rate as beautiful; the added flair of the stringing inlay around the top, and the epoxied inlace in the base, takes it to another level altogether.

Simply excellent ...

As others have already said ..GREAT

Question, How do you avoid tearout? Inside and outside, twice as many opportunities....for bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I don't think I can say it better than the other guys already did. This piece is just beautiful.

I would be interested to see your home made ring press. I'm not even sure what it is.

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

When I get back in town I'll post a pic of it. When I stack the rings of a segmented bowl or vessel, the press applies pressure to the rings to squeeze out the excess glue. As far as the tearout isssue goes, I use a great big 3 wheeled steady rest. I got it so long ago that I forget who made it. I'll post pics of it too. It's a beast.
