    Row 19 on, row 20 is the last open segment row. Then I have to decide what I want to do to cap it off

    Using my artist license, and adding a open segment row of all maple at the top of the bowl. Did not want the pattern to run into the closing ring.

    Second uses of artist license originally planned to have a thin yellowheart accent ring along with the padauk ring, but decided it would be unnoticeable as yellowheart so I've decided to use maple. Had a solid maple ring already made from previous bowl so only had to make the padauk ring. Glued up this morning wait for it to dry.

    Great project, Bob. Thanks for your work on documenting it for all of us.

    I'm experimenting with a couple things - first, I'm making the thumbnails larger and I'm also having it include the other pictures that are found on each page.

    Tomorrow we will part off the padauk to a thinner layer and do some turning

    What is the blue tape for Bob? Glue squeeze out? Should be rewarding to turn this build. Can't wait to see the finished project.

    Blue painter tape to keep glue of the openings on the top row of segments when I glue on the top ring

    If I get my new jig up and working my next is going to be 60 or 72 segments I think

    Sorry to hear that. Can we expect bigger and better once that new infinity index resource system is up and running?
