Hackberry/Walnut segmented bowl

I started this bowl on fathers day and got the final finish on it yesterday. My only problems with this bowl were some bad planning on a few of the rings, and the ring second from the top was a problem from the very start and I should have just scrapped it and re-cut all the segments for the hassle it ended up causing me. Almost as if everything that could go wrong in the entire bowl ended up focused on that ring. Anyway, this is the final result, 80 segments and a solid bottom, sanded to 800, then multiple coats of wipe on poly inside and out. This will be a nice gift for my mentor at work.

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

Really nice effort!
Segmented bowls are on my short list...

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

Looks great Glid,
pattern and contrast are very eye-catching. I'm sure your mentor will like it.

Thanks for the compliments, I have to say working with hackberry was a real pleasure. I had some maple that I was going to use instead, but really like how hackberry looks, and now that it's done I'm glad I chose to go that route.
