Trying something different for segmented turning. This is the first of three that did not come apart on the lathe. I must be learning. A lot of time on splinter and foam cleanup. It rough shape but in one piece. Ph and maple 10” x 4”

I’m not a real lathe man but I can sort of see how something like that might won’t to come apart while you’re turning it. However, I can also see how if it makes it thru the turning process, you have something that you can be proud of. That looks great. Good work!!!

do you plan on turning it down any further?
regardless, it’s a very cool looking piece!

Very interesting! I bet it sounded like the Batmobile when you turned it.

That’s very cool. I may have to borrow that idea if you don’t mind.
