About a month ago, I picked up a Jet 1642 EVS 1 1/2 HP lathe. Since I am primarily a bowl turner, I wanted to raise the lathe up to a more comfortable height. And while the Jet 1642 does weigh 435 lbs by itself, (IMHO) a ballast box for adding some weight would only improve its performance. Information is copyright of its respective owners.
This segmented bowl project is meant for at least intermediate woodturners. Follow along through the pictures and instructions to create your own segmented bowl.
Recently I was asked to explain how to turn a natural edged, end grain bowl. That is, a bowl with the grain running parallel to the lathe bed and the edge of the log left as the bowl edge. If you want a smooth edged bowl, just turn the piece round as you start. It will make sense as we go.

This is a great beginners project on the lathe. Turn this simple tea light holder with these free instructions.
I am not really sure what to call these figures. They are not really winged or natural edged bowls because there is not enough bowl inches in the center, but they could be used for rustic crafts making angels wings.
Diagram only with dimensional information. I thought the Inlaid Cup was a little bit much as my first project using Segment Designs, so I simplified it, constructed it, and you can see the result…
I did not know what a hyperbolic bowl was, so I asked the author, David Kassover, to send it to me. Interesting!
