I glued up enough stock for two 12 inch bowls. I cut out the rings for one bowl but on the second bowl I had a ring break and go flying even though I taped it. I had already cut four rings, so I set them aside and continued cutting rings and made a smaller bowl. Then I decided to make a bottom for the four rings that I had already cut. I had a piece of walnut that I was able to plain to the same thickness as the segmented rings and so I made a bottom for the four pieces and ended up with three bowls instead of two.

Here they are.
The large one first. 12" across and 4 7/8" tall.

Here are the two that was supposed to be one. Small one is 8 1/4" x 3" The short fat one is 12" x 3"

All three.

Actually I never timed myself. But I have to glue up flat stock that looks like the bottom of the bowls. Then run it through the planer and get it flat within a few thousands of an inch in uniform thickness. Then I draw a circle on the wood as large as I want the top of the bowl to be (up to 12 inches). I cut that out on my band saw and drill a half inch hole in the center. This I mount on my Ring Master lathe and begin to cut out rings. It doesn't take long to cut the rings, 10-20 minutes, depends on the material. Then the rings are glued together and put in a press. After that the bowl goes back on the lathe and is sanded smooth. Then a coat of sanding sealer and several coats of finish is put on. I usually do several at a time so I never timed it out to see how much time I have in each of them.

Sounds like a lot of time and work goes into them.

Very nice job on the bowls. It definitely sounds time consuming, but well worth it.
