    Open segment segment fruit bowl with foot

    I made this just to show how I did it on a utube video.
    Its just an easy turning 12' diameter 4 woods Macassar Ebony, Yellow Heart, Purple Heart and Homigo 16 segments per ring and a very simple pattern.
    It looks different when turned 90 degrees

    Was I the only one hoping to see a guy wearing a Darth Maul mask in the You Tube video?

    In all seriousness, awesome work!

    Earl, you make me angry every time I look at your work. It's so beautiful I just want to punch a puppy!
    I really need to come visit your shop one day. I'm over near Lizzie, maybe 20 minutes from you.

    Another in a long line of masterpieces Earl! Beautiful, wonderful, spectacular, and unique; you are the master!

    Re: Open segment segment fruit bowl with foot

    I enjoy looking at your efforts, RAS, but it hurts my head trying to figure out how it all happens.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Earl, where did you get the reference sheet you use when figuring the number of segments, ring size, etc?
