This is my first attempt at a segmented bowl.  It's constructed of mahogany, with ebony, bloodwood and maple accents.  The stringing design in the bottom is bloodwood, ebony, and holly.  The 1/32" ebony and bloodwood stringing had to be steam bent to fit the tight contours of the design, which was cut using a custom jig and router.  The finish is a blend of shellac and boiled linseed oil, which is applied as a friction polish.  

Design or Plan used: My own design
