Learn all about making wonderful segmented bowls like this one. Presentation is by Don Jovag, author of the book Segmented Bowls for the Beginning Turner

Don Jovag will be giving a Demo on turning Segmented Bowls at Woodworkers Source in Tucson:

  • April 26 2014 – 9:30 am,
  • Woodworkers Source in Tucson, AZ (3441 S. Palo Verde Rd., map)

Don will demonstrate how to get started on a segmented bowl, making a fixture for safely cutting accurate segments, gluing up segments and rings, turning the body with a bottom to fit, and answer your questions.

Don is known for his book on the subject, Segmented Bowls for the Beginning Turner (@Amazon), that is designed for the beginning wood turner that is ready to take up the challenge of turning a segmented bowl. The hallmark of a segmented bowl is the design incorporated into the body. While these designs appear to be complicated and difficult to make, his book simplifies the process. The problem of cutting the segments safely and 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. Don’s book has straightforward instructions with over 200 clear color photos and patterns to guide you in this process.

Don will have his books for sale, and of course, he’ll gladly sign your copy for you.
