hi Derek and Baz
      thank you for your coments on this bowl.
  Derek it took about 30 mins between each ring on glue up and about 15 mins to cut the segments and 2 hrs to turn the final bowl so in all about 6 hours in all from start to finish.

You certainly seem to have got the hang of this type of segmented work. another great piece well done indeed.

hi Alan and Ralph
thank you for your comments. segmented turning is all about patience and avision of what shape you require as you start to put it together. on the safe side i try to use longer segments to give me a chanse if i end up with any shape problems.

hi dennis
great bowl! a question please. for the solid top ring, did you glue a whole piece of wood on, or cut a hollow disk out? i'm trying to save as much wood as possible, and am keen to know what techniques you use.

hi Vaughn
 in this bowl i actualy used a solid bit of mahogany. what you could do is a segmented ring. i have in other bowls that are seen in my other album segmented the ring using 12 segments to the ring by cuting the angles to 15 deg. a width that is about 1/2 " bigger than you require so any out of true shape can be taken in to do this all you need to do is work out how much wood in one length you requier +a bout 4" for wastage. then plain it alsides true then cut the segments to your requierd length and glue up.after that sand ore plain one face flat so as to glue to your segmented section of your bowl or plater. i hope that this is of use to you.
