Segmented Bowl | The Wood Whisperer

A very nice turning submitted by Michael. I have yet to try a segmented bowl but the results clearly make it worth all the effort!

From: Michael Harman

Website: Lumberjock’s Profile

Location: Dayton, OH

Amateur or Pro: Amateur

Wood Species: Walnut, Cherry, Birdseye Maple

Project Description: This is only the second segmented bowl I’ve turned and it was really a surprise how easy it was to construct and turn. Turning this bowl was way easier than I thought and very enjoyable. I won’t win any design competitions with my simple design but the outcome is really great and does not take long. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. I have simply a Jet 1014 lathe and common lathe tools. It is a quick and satisfying project.

Process: I glued up several 8-sided rings (painters tape to hold the segments together): this makes it faster. When I got them all assembled I stacked them and clamped them in place. I included a piece of plywood on the very top to mount the faceplate. I inserted a piece of paper between the top ring and the plywood mount. I was able to turn them only a few hours later. Once the outside and bottom were shaped using a roughing and spindle gouge, I was able to break the paper bond from the plywood and flip the piece around, mounting it on a chuck. I turned the top edge and inside with a gouge and scraper. The scraper, utilized at a downward angle to engage the hook edge properly, is really the key.

Turning a Vampire Stake on the Lathe | The Wood Whisperer

Subscription Options

Turning on the lathe is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of woodworking. Every time I turn I ask myself, “Why don’t I do this more often??” I still don’t have an answer to that. But recently, I had the opportunity to turn a cool item for a charity event. My friend Shawn was creating unique auctions for a Muscular Dystrophy charity event. One of those auctions was for a vampire slaying kit, which of course required a stake. Unconventional? Made of wood? For charity? I’m in!!!

While making the video, I decided it wouldn’t hurt to review some turning basics as well as introduce you to the tools I use most frequently. These include the Ellsworth gouge, the roughing gouge, the skew chisel, and the diamond parting tool. If you are interesting in picking any of these up, I included affiliate links below for these tools. Remember, buying through us helps support the show.

And keep in mind, although I am turning a vampire stake here, the tools and techniques are the same that you would use to turn a spindle in a regular woodworking project.
