thank you all for the comments. this bowl is probably the largest i willl ever do as it was rather hard to get to the bottom of the inside . the tool rest i have diddent go that fare down so i hade to make a one to get ther .the woods used are not as i sayed in the title i found out last night at the woodturning club thatr the darker wood is actualy rose wood .the turning was hard as the 2 woods are verry brittle and chiped out in places. i was only able to turne at a verry slow speed so doing the actual turning was verry slow. ther are 193 segments to the bowl.

As I've said before Dennis,your patience and skill at this particularly difficult type of wood turning are admirable.Well done again.After 2 failed attempts I've given up.  Alan T.

hi Alan
  thank you for your comments.
    dont give up on your segmented turning as you lern from your problems i have as the last bowl i did for the wife had to be done 3 times befor i got it right. this wan that you see is the bigest and hardest to do.i now have a nother segmented wine bottle to do for a friend by the 1st of next month so i will have to get cracking on it. i have just come in from the shed with about 200 segments for it . the good thing is all the segments are the same size at the moment. seting to now to start sanding down and gluing up ring by ring.will post when it is finished.

Sorry for the late reply  , but well done on the bowl . It must be a real challenge to turn something with gaps in , preventing the chisel biting and destroying the work piece . I do like the spiral effect too . Must be time consuming piecing it all together to give equal / sequential gaps/voids . 

Once again well done mate

Jealous regards Sam

hi Sam
   yes it is time consuming as you have to glue and then wait for the segments to dry before duing the next ring . it took about 18 to 20 hours to do this one. but worthit when the end product is seen. i hope my friends wife likes it will see later today as i take it over.
