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.

This is what it will take (I hope and pray)… to get me back out into the shop. Retired with plenty of good tools. Two heart attacks  20 days apart, January of this year shut me down.

This is absolutely the best How To video I have seen
on the internet, bar none.

I give my bowls to people at my small church.

Thank You, Ed Weber for making my day.

Joseph... rumors are  that making wood shavings and dust is good for the heart!!!
Lifting 50 lb hunks of a log might not be, tho.

...and if you are going to go from a heart attack, it might as well be while you are do something you love!!!  Shocked Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Ed... fantastic work!!

You did yourself proud, Ed.  Excellent first try.  I would also prefer if it was narrated,

Thanks again for the compliments, I do appreciate it.

If you look at the OP date, this was done about 5 1/2 years ago. Sorry about the lack of narration, it was my intention that the photos do the talking. While I no longer have the piece (Xmas exchange years ago), I may have some additional photo's not included in the slide show.
If there are any questions, please just ask.
Once you build your sled and get everything set, these are pretty easy to make. This type of vessel is also good for using small burl caps for the top and/or base section instead of segmenting it as I did. Sometimes the segmented top can make the piece look too busy, which is why I opted for very thin maple dividers on the walnut vessel.
