I really don’t know where this segmented type of turning is taking me…But I sure am having fun finding out.

This is my second go at segmentation work. I believe it is getting better but not totally satisfied as of yet. This one is a vase, 10” tall by 8” round. Walnut and poplar (because that is what I had on hand). Finish is WaterLux, and I really like this stuff. Will defiantly use more of it.

Picture is not very good. This image really doesn’t do the piece justice. I have had some computer problems lately and have lost almost everything. Now playing with some new programs….. bare with me.

Very nice! I have always been interested in segmented turning. How large of a lathe must you have to turn a piece of this size?

Brian I really like the subtle timber mix it does the job nicely & is not overpowering (as some segmentation can be) The reverse tri’s and the corresponding outline shift works very well also. Well done with this one

Great segmented piece. Love the colors/wood choices. And the design is great! The way the triangles shift from upper to lower id a nice touch.

Keep it up.

Very nice indeed! I haven’t done segment work but that is the next step for me I think when I get back in Michigan.

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful vase and great work Brian. Nice design, tight glue lines, smooth finish. Couldn’t be better.
