Wood Turning

Segmented bowl

Had this image in my head and wanted to give it a shot.
Not sure if oak was the best choice for the main body. I found it very hard to turn and with the wide annual rings in the bottom a real bear to get the bottom smooth.
Undoubtedly there is some technique I’m not familiar with but I’ve been turning for all of 5 weeks now so I’m certain there’s lots to learn.
Right now the tung oil seal coats are drying. In a few days I’ll try the Beall buffing system on it.
