Finally finished

It is finally done. I learned so much from all you guys. Thanks for the inputs.

Overall, it is about 11.5" in diameter by about 4.5" tall. It is finished in tung oil so that it can be used with food.

AZ Termite. Thanks for the inspiration on making this. It was your bowl that inspired me to give this a shot.

It is not as difficult as you think to do this. Everyone should give it a shot.

What do you think of the bowl?

Pt, that bowl turned out great. Keep up the good work. I have had a lot of fun with the bowls I have done. I am glad I was an inspiration to you. As I am sure you know now its not as hard as it looks. The cool thing is your options are endless, and take you as far as your imagination will.

Nice bowl! I can't wait to finish up some other projects and try a segmented bowl.

The saga never ends!!!

Well, as a proud woodworker I took my finished bowl to work today. Everyone liked it but when one of them went to remove it from the shelf it was sitting on, the worst thing that could have happened did.

He dropped it. My fears of the top section being too thin was true. It didn't last the fall!!! The top shattered like glass. Boy did he feel really really bad about it.

I "redesigned" it by parting off the top ring plus a little more. Now it is much stronger and it still looks pretty good. I had to be creative on how to put it on the lathe though. Something that wasn't very difficult but since I hadn't done it before, it was something new.....

Boy, I continue to learn and learn.

Nice save, again. And nice bowl. You could write a book on this bowl now.

movement in service?

I'll be very interested in hearing by the end of this summer, whether or not you've experienced any cracking in the bowl due to movement in service. I've always hesitated to do segmented bowls as big and thin as this one because of that potential problem.

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

9 Lives

This bowl must be a cat! It has 9 lives! And, it looks like it was designed this way from the start. Great Job.

The true measure of a woodworker is his ability to make his mistakes look intentional (or not be seen at all!)
