Hi all, 

After a long hiatus, I finally got to fire up the lathe and try out the tools I won at Christmas. So I decided to jump in head first and polish those segmenting skills. The oak and walnut started as a bowl but morphed into a vasey basket thing when one of the rings exploded inside the planer. The walnut bowl was the second attempt with the same design. It has a flaw in that I had to remount it and it became off center resulting in an uneven wall. The tools made short work of blending the rings and the finishing tool is now my new favorite.

I have a third bowl in the press, now. It is a bubinga bowl made of 24 pc. rings and stacked to 7 inches. The final ring is Gabon ebony and will become the bowl rim. Ebony has its own challenges but I am hopeful of the end result. 

Sorry it took so long to post, but the last few months were insane. My therapy / wood shop is about to get a long workout :-)
