My good friend Kyle Gorrell started making segmented bowls a couple of years ago in my shop. He now has his own shop and is creating beautiful objects. The Jesus bowls were Christmas gifts made for his mother and sister. He has one bowl to finish for his collection. I believe there are 107 pieces of wood in each bowl. The other bowls shown were is first segmented bowls. His work is of his own design.

The headboard was re-purposed from a family heirloom piano that was my mother-in-laws and a gift from her father or my wife’s grandfather. It was also the piano my wife (Kay) learned to play. Kay was given the piano after her parents retired and moved to the lake so we’ve been storing the piano for at least 13 years. The soundboard was damaged so we never really considered having it repaired back to working condition. After some discussion and with permission from my wife I disassembled the piano. It has been disassembled for a couple of years but with a promise to re-purpose it into a useful piece of furniture. Read more
This project was built by Chuck Roach from Wichita, KS. He built this cradle 4 years ago for their first granddaughter. The cradle disassembles so that it can be stored flat. It is his own design and is made of ash. Great work Chuck!
This project comes from Ron Perry, his first segmented turning. This is a pen and pencil cup for his wife’s desk at her office. It has 73 pieces in it. Ron has been taking advantage of the segmented videos found on the HOW website. We’re very glad that he has shared his work with us. Great job Ron!
