Southwest Bowl

This is my first serious segmented project other than simple bricklay. Its a Ray Allen copy except for a few design changes due to oops.

Awesome. One of these days I'll quit being so lazy and do a segmented bowl.

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

I'm with you sawdust. It also looks pretty intimidating to me.

That's some nice work, you have a stunning bowl there!

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

Very nice Dean. I'd like to start doing some segmented turning myself. What size are the vessels?

Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should!

The vessels are 8" high by 3" diameter. The one on the left is made from sappy oak and looks better than the maple/walnut one.

That's some great work there. Wish I could find the time to make something like that. They look time consuming but well worth it in the end.
