    Tiny segmented bowl

    I put together a tiny segmented bowl over the past 2-3 weeks, as time allowed.

    4 1/4" tall, 4 inches across the top, 2" bottom diameter. 176 pieces in 11 rings of 16 segments. Mahogany, walnut, wedge, and an unknown (I cannot remember, it was in a scrap bin...). 2 coats of shellac, and 2 coats of brush on lacquer.

    Nicely done. How did you handle the bottom of the vessel? Does it float to avoid splitting?

    Re: Tiny segmented bowl

    I still have troubles with that part. I cut an undersize piece 1-1/4" oak dowel that was 3/8" thick. This is glued into a recesses drilled with 1-3/8" Forstner bit between the bottom 2 segments. I'll see how it holds up over time.

    This was all glued to a waste block on a faceplate, then I cut it off with a pull saw once the finish was applied so I could use the lathe as a third hand to rotate the work.

    Very impressive Neal! To cement all those segments together is probably harder than with a larger vessel. Your work is far above my paygrade!

    Great job, your skills are greatly improving. The different woods work very nicely together. Looking forward to your next piece.
