no previous part Part 1 of Segmented Hollow Vessel series Part 2: The Glue-Up »

I have been working on various design’s to follow up my Segmented Abstract Model, Flower, for several months now. I’ve got a few different designs that I would like to pull together at some point. Recently I came up with a design that felt just right. I knew it was time to make it happen.

With all the sketching done, it was time to make some saw dust and cut some segments. I started the segment cutting Sunday and finished up Monday. I hope to get most of the glue up done over the next few days.

The vessel will be six inches high and six inches in diameter and will include 235 segments. Here’s a sneak peek…

Looks good so far. I read somewhere that you should glue up half and put it on the lathe to make it easy to clean out the lower part before gluing the rest of it together. I have not gotten around to do segmentation yet but doing this sounds like a good way to go. I’ll be following your progress!

right now the only ring that has been glued up is the one without the rubberband. Bearpie, I have heard the same thing about turning the top and bottom halves seperate and I think that is how i’m going to approach this as I move forward. Right now i just have some gluing to do!
