that’s pretty impressive. I like that third picture the best, it’s a nice look of the segmentations.

very nice, I love the shape and base design.

two questions, do you ebonize your own walnut? and how if you do.

what finish did you use?

I guess thats 3 questions.

Beautiful! Every time I see one of these segmented piecesI tell myself I’ve got to do a little research to figure out exactly how they are made.

Really a neat design. I really love these segmented turnings. This is quite appealing.

This a really nice design. I agree with Charlie M. The more of these posts I see the more convinced that I am missing out on a unique woodworking experience by not having a lathe.

The woods really compliment each other.

Thanks for sharing this project.

Great segmented piece Tom. A lot of difficult design elements in this piece. Your zig-zag pattern looks perfect

This takes both the skills of box making and the skills of turning to produce.
Very fine job on both.
