The wife and I will be attending a wedding in a couple of weeks of a good friends daughter and I turned a segmented salad set for the bride. Made it from Alder and Walnut wood, my only regret is not having maple in the place of the alder.

really like the gift. I have got to try this segment turning. Where can I learn to make the rings, and build process?

Sorry for the delay in answering, I’ve been away from home all day. So to learn segmented turning, youtube is your friend. My large bowl is made after a gentleman from Canada by the name Wallace Currie, he had 2 video’s on his style of bowls. I made his version of a sled to cut the bottom ring for the large bowl. His sled requires a lot of trial and error to get it to work, so be pre-warned.

I made the wedgie sled that works really good and my first ring I cut using the sled and a 30-60 plastic angle from the hobby store worked perfect. I’ve made other angles myself but requires trial and error to get the angle correct. Here is the web page for building the sled. Search on youtube for Segmentology for videos on making and using the sled.

Hope this helps.
