« Part 5: 10 layers Part 6 of Unique Segmented form series Part 7: Start of the hollowing process »

There are 12 layers glued to the center. I planned on 16 layers to copy the original but the dimension are just right with 12 . Currently the diameter is 8 1/2” and the finished height will be 4 1/2”. Next I drew out the shape on the side. The goal is to make this an elliptical shape.

I glued in a tenon on the top to help hold the piece while turning. This tenon will be drilled out later for the opening.

Loving it, thx for sharing. I managed to make my first vase yesterday w/o ruining mm it. First time hollowing out, doing it blind and be feel is interesting for a rookie.

Look fwd to seeing more of this buddy.

Julian, that is extremely interesting, I’ve seen that design in Patchworking ( My Wife), but never imagined that it could be used in woodturning.
Thank you for posting this.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Have your say...
