This book is designed for the beginning wood turners ready to take up the challenge of turning segmented bowls and platters. Each step of the process is explained in both straightforward instructions and over 200 clear color photos and patterns. The hallmark of a segmented bowl is the design incorporated into the body. While these designs appear to be complicated and difficult to make, this book simplifies the process. Key to making these apparently complex designs is using a combination of different wood colors and varying lengths and segment alignments. The problem of cutting the segments accurately is also solved with instructions for making simple fixtures for your table saw that cut segments with enough precision to avoid complicated sanding and fitting. Using the methods described here, wood turners will successfully create segmented salad bowls, decorator bowls, and serving platters. While written with the beginner in mind, this book is a must for all wood turners.
