Handcrafted Walnut Segmented Wooden Bowl
This is a “Segmented” Bowl took a week to glue up. There 27 pieces of Curly Maple & Walnut glued together and was a fun project to turn on my lathe.
This is Walnut segmented wooden bowl is made with wood purchased from an Amish sawmill in Arkansas . It has twenty eight pieces of Walnut glued together. This provides two benefits over turning a bowl from a solid blank. First, there’s less waste because the blank will already be hollow. Second, when turning, you’re nearly always cutting with the grain of the wood, rather than across it. The exception being the disk at the bottom. This reduces tearing, wear on the tools, and makes mounds of those shaving ribbons that are so satisfying to watch fountain off the work-piece and pile up on the floor.
Walnut is an all-around popular choice for woodworking. It has a fine texture and works extremely well with hand and power tools. Walnut is prized for use in furniture, cabinets, and a multitude of other projects. It is a popular choice for turning and carving as well.
A large Walnut – hand tuned, one-of-a-kind bowl suitable for offerings, display, dried herbs etc . . . Finish is satin hand rubbed and food safe.
Remember there is only one of this bowl making it a unique. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors.
