Fist test try at segmented bowl

Its nothing fancy. and its not finished. just wanted to go though some of the process and get my feet wet. ..made it from a piece of oak flooring i had lying around... I think in going to like doing this.. its not as frustrating as working with green wood.. I need to either build a Longworth or buy a jscole..

I used some homemade cole jaws to cut mine Anthony and they work fine for the size bowl's i have made. The rubber Posts and threaded nuts are all from Ace hardware. Your bowl looks good to me, nice work. Smiley

Good job Anthony.  Looks like you got nice tight glue joints, which is half the battle.  I use a donut chuck to finish the bottoms.  It holds the bowl much more securely than Cole jaws or a Longworth chuck.  You can make your own donut with multiple holding rings for different size bowls.

Thanks ..the joints came out much better than I thought they would.. It boosted my confidence level .. I really wasn't intending to make a bowl, I was just looking to see how difficult cutting the angles would be. It was easy enough so I continued on.. I only did 8 segments..I can see using more segments will save me turning time.. I need a few more bowl gouges with different profiles so I'll save a few bucks  on the chuck and build  one, a donut chuck seems like it might be the easiest and most secure.. I'll look into all three and decide.  Thanks for the  heads up.

I was basically just interest in how difficult it was to cut the segments.. I'm pretty happy with results first time out ..I built a simple fixed 22.5deg angle jig and didn't even have to adjust it was spot on.. beginners luck 😆
