Mesquite Segmented Bowl

Continuing my journey in segment work. Really hooked, this is an enormous amount of fun. Constructed of flat stock Mesquite, including the homemade “ply” base to eliminate movement issues. Kept my segment count low again to focus on the process, good thing too as I ended up with an issue. Top ring pieces were super uneven and figured out there was a ton of thickness variation in the board I started with. I had assumed that purchased processed timber would be relatively even and I was wrong. This is where my complete lack of flatwork experience gets in the way. Fixed my issues instead of just making a new ring so I could learn. Next project has been started and I ran the boards through the planer and jointer first. Yes, I had those tools before...no, I didn’t use them previously. Up to recently I’ve only been a chunk turner (chunky turner as well but that’s a different thread.). 8 3/4” diameter and 3 3/4” tall. 5 rings plus ply base. 84 pieces total.
