Great use of offcuts Vaughn. Nicely turned bowl would be nice to see a side view

I like it, its a great way to use up off cuts, ever thought of slipping veneer or thin contrast strips between each piece ?
Keep up the good work.

Hi Derek and Ralph
Derek, i posted a side view photo in my album for you. i took the photo before the final wax coat unfortunately!
ralph, i like the idea very much, you'll recall i asked you about the thin pieces in your segmented vase? i don't come across much, and don't really have the right tools to cut thin strips myself. i never realised that to turn you also needed quite a lot of other tools.
it would be interesting to hear from the turners, if they could say what other machinery they use most to get the blanks ready. i could use a few pointers, as i'm looking at a bandsaw, and possibly a drum sander for segmented work.
thanks for the kind comments as always!

Tis a lovely bowl, well done.
Regarding 'special' tools.........the only ones I use is a plane to knock off the harsh edges but, other than that, its all done on the lathe..........
Just make up the blank to as near as the shape required, clean up the edges and either fix to a blank or chuck to suit.........and away you go!!

You can't always get a feel of the true shape when photoed from the top
