Another Hackberry & Walnut bowl

Hackberry and Walnut, 120 segments plus the base. 5 1/2 inches in diameter and 4 inches tall. The wall thickness is a little thicker than I'd like around 1/4" to 5/16", but I didn't want to cut too much more since I was having some problems with my glue block. I found that making a sled for the tablesaw to cut the segments made a huge difference in the initial glueup of the rings.

Beautiful bowl. I have got to get off my lazy arse and try a segmented bowl.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Good job. A sled is a nice way to go. I'm getting back into segmented work so I have gone back through the test cutting phase with my new Makita sliding miter saw and my disc sander. I'm going to try and run test on my table saw sled and fine tune it a little. I'm going to order better blades because that seems to be my major problem with my accuracy. I cut 16 rings the other day testing out my new saw and getting a project ready.
If you not member of the segmented turning group you should look into it. There is a lot of good info there.

Thanks for the compliments. I've signed up on the segmented woodturners forum but haven't brought myself to pay for a full subscription. I've also been wanting to get Malcomb Tibbits books and DVD's but haven't had the free money for that yet either. I'm looking forward to getting some more ideas for designing feature rings, and I'd like to try some staved turnings as well.

What they said ... beautiful bowl, stuff like this keeps nudging me in the direction of trying segmented turning.

Do you have drawings of photos of your TS sled? If I'm going to do it, I'd really like to have the best odds of success, and when John says a sled is the way to go, I listen

I'll try and remember to pull out the sled and take a picture, it's ain't pretty but it keeps a solid angle once everything is in place. Right now I've just got it set up to do 18 degree cuts for 10 segment rings, but I'm going to try a some 12 segment rings on the next bowl.

nice work

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