over the last week i have been cutting and sanding all the segments for this fruit bowl. the top ring has been cut using a ban saw. the other segments are cut with a chop saw. they are 97 segments to it. if you look at the base it looks as if it is segments but it is from a kitchen work top.


comments please

hi Derek
thank you for your comments. the top was cut at my woodturning club as i haven't got a ban saw and the clubs had just been set up and needed to be tried out so give them a right good challenge. the bowl was hard to turn as most of the wood was dry. i have finished with a spray lacquer, i have not had a go with this before so hope it dries out well.

Wow Dennis! Another great piece. I still haven't plucked up the courage (and probably not the skill either!) to have a go at one of these, but maybe one day. Keep 'em coming.

hi Ron and Sam
thank you for your comments. i took the bowl into work today and showed it of and i may have another 2 to do.
as for the rim all you need to do to get the joints to match is cut 2 lengths of contrasting wood( already planned and thickness) to a usable length in this case 100mm. use double sided tape and join the 2 together on top of each other. mark center and draw a flowing line through the center line and center point. do this for all the segments needed for the top ring don't forget to mark them with a number on the left and right so as to match later. using the band saw with a blade that will cut round the line in one move so as not to put any gaps in. when you have cut all the segments split the 2 parts top and bottom from the double sided tap and then join the top left to the bottom right ( they should match with no gap if you have cut with care) then just use PVA glue and end pressure with a clamp. then all you need to do is mark the segment for cutting size using the center to work both ways to centralize the design. cut sand and then glue clamp using jubilee clips to keep the joints together

Hi Dennis,

Can you drop me that link please on your "how to" for segmented turning - I have been looking through posts and your gallery but have been unable to locate it -

I really like your work and fancy having a go at some myself.

Thanks

Steve
