I glued up my first attempt to do an open segment bowl. It lasted one minute before I caught a piece and it blew apart. I was not really happy with the glue up so I am gluing up another one and so far it is looking good. I went from 1/2 inch thick segments to 3/4 inch thick and I made the wall thickness thicker. I have been looking for web sites that would help me with techniques and tools to use with open segmented bowls but have not had any real success. Any help to make my next attempt better. I know about the Hunter osprey tool but I don't have one. I have carbide tools ( small and large round, square and diamond).
