« Part 2: Day 1 - Segmented Wine Bottle Stopper - 1/2 & 1/2 Twist Part 3 of 30 Projects in 30 Days series Part 4: Half way there, 15 projects complete »

Well it’s day 6 of my 30 Projects in 30 Days challenge and I’ve just completed my fourth project. I did not expect this challenge to be easy, and so far I have not been dissappointed!

In an effort to make sure no one is getting bored with my continued wine bottle stopper collection, I thought I would push myself to try something new. I’ve been thinking off using the open segmentation technique for a little while now, so I spent the past couple days putting this together to see if it would work. I think it came out kind of cool. I’ll definately be seeing how I can continue pushing this concept.

I think is was hollowing out the inside that had me most concerned. I made sure to show my wife the completed blank before I started turning, just in case there wasn’t an “after”!

Here are the other three projects I have completed this past week.

Had to chuckle at this line because I’ve done it as well. You tell the Mrs. “Look at this, it’s going to be really cool when it’s done.” And then you hope that it really will be done. The challenge is on and it’s great that we’re not alone doing it. Seeing what you and Scott are doing is making this most interesting.

Yes, a great little class, or “camp” were at. Go off to your shop, then come back and show us what you’ve got! Cool to see these evolve and increase in complexity. You should be proud.
