Walnut/Cherry Segmented salad bowl

Walnut/Cherry Segmented salad bowlBeen awhile since I've posted, but here we go. I've spent a lot of hours this week working on my largest ever (86 pieces) segmented salad bowl. Walnut and cherry. It's 14.25×6.25. I did use for the first time the ”miterset” jig to cut all my segments and it worked great. My new Jet 16/32 drum sander was great for getting the rings nice and flat. Almost done just hoping I can use my vacuum Chuck so I can finish the bottom. What I found interesting was the color variations in the walnut, considering I cut it all from the same slab. First mistake I made – when I created the glue block with a tenon my tenon was much too small to handle a bowl this large. I sort of anticipated this and had already turned a new larger tenon in the bottom, it did snap off sending the 1/2 finished bowl to the floor. Once I got it re-chucked on the larger tenon I was able to continue but did have to redo the outside to remove some dents and scratches. I used General Finishes Salad Bowl finish, 3 coats with 600 grit sanding in between. This will be a food safe finish in about 30 days once completely dry. Quite happy with the end result.
