Ray Allen shows how to buildthis beautiful bowl
We've long admired Ray Allen's stunning segmented bowls. So we asked the Yuma, Arizona, turner to show us (and you) how to make one. While watching Ray build a segmented bowl blank, we quickly uncovered the secret to his success-painstaking precision. Whether he's constructing a 6" bowl like the one shown at right or one of his larger pieces, Ray makes sure every segment fits perfectly. Here are the steps to follow; the precision is up to you.
