Thanks for an overall good slideshow.  My questions (and hope you discuss more in the instructions) would be on the fit-up:  when you are looking at the ends with all the staves held together with rubber bands, it looks like there are some minute gaps between staves.  Am I seeing this correctly? Do you touch up the saw cuts before you glue?  Do the gaps disappear when you glue it up, or when you insert the walnut spacers?

I think you're refering to the top section. Yes there are gaps, the veneer does not extend to the center. It does not need to, since I'm just going to hollow it out anyway. The bottom section is solid.

I was actually looking at the maple staves at 1:21, especially at the 11 oclock position;  I have encountered tiny gaps like this in my few attempts at a segmented  bowl and the gap was noticable in the finished piece

Sorry Mike, you are correct. yes there are very small gaps, this was just a dry fit. I actually did the glue-up in halves on all the sections. Then each half was checked for uniformity and flatness, then sanded as needed. Once both sides are flat and even, I insert the final sections of veneer and clamp with the rubber bands you see in the slide show. It was just too much of a pain in the ... for me to take pictures during the glue-ups. i'll try not to skip any elements next time.
You can however glue-up all the sections at once if all pieces are "perfect", but there is usually some variable that keeps this from happening. I got lucky doing this once on an earlier piece,(pictured below) that's why I always do a dry fit to assess the possibility of a single stage glue-up.

Thanks Steve, it's been awhile, maybe I'll do another.
