Final piece for 2015
Dec 31st, 2015 at 3:23pm
 
This was some material I had put together when making the vase I posted a few days ago; This one is 10" d x 6 1/2" tall Pompele Sapele & Tiger Maple, It's hard to see but it's under cut and it's about 1/4" Thick except the base.

Interesting, it must be art, because it won't hold soup. Cheesy

Thank you Breck; Bert I was thinking fruit not soup, every body's been asking about the holes. you guys must never look at other work on the net.? there's a bunch of basket type bowls being made in segmenting.

It should hold fruit very well, the shape and materials are very well done. What I really enjoy about this forum is the great diversity of presentation. Thanks for posting, and yes I do look at a lot of work posted on the Internet. All the best to you and yours I this new year.

Why does everything we turn have to have a use, does the Mona Lisa have a use other than to just enjoy the beauty and the artistic endeavor. I think your piece Bruce is beautiful just as it is. Just my 2 cents worth.

Thank you Bert and David; I think a piece can just be looked at and not have a function. I had been meaning to show some of the before turning photos of the rough blank so here they are. This piece was a trick to turn and even trickier to sand the inside an keep your fingers.

Very well done Bruce. Thanks for posting the before pictures.

I have never done segmented turning, but am in the stages of setting up to do so. Your work inspires me to hurry up and learn.  Smiley

Bruce, this is a very unusual piece. I love that your are thinking outside of the normal "box" of turning.  The selection of wood is wonderful and really comments the piece.  I can see this piece in a gallery somewhere! Well done!  Smiley

I would love to see more of your turnings...

It's true I got my HF lathe last July- Aug; but I've been a cabinetmaker for 30 plus years. Thank you for you kind words. I guess Kathy saw my stuff also?
