Hi rjchips,
Now that is nice.
You seem to have got the perfect mix of style and wood figure together.
Some of the segmented creations the appear on LJ just don’t seem to fit together as well as yours. Segmented is hard to do at the best of times to pull it of in style is a big plus.

Thanks for sharing. jb

Very “VERY” nice feature ring—I always think they pop out a great deal more when you use a thin strip of (like ebony) to highlight each square of the feature ring—also you are doing the same thing I catch myself to late doing that is not orintating the growth ring patterns in the wood—the look better if you turn them all up or all down or even ever other—but random doesn’t work too well—Hope you don’t mind the critique—wish more posters critiqued for me intead of just blowin wind up my skirt. Again great job on the feature

Hi rjchips I second lizardhead & rimfire 7891 and have 1 comment to add and that is I would have liked the feature ring to have been one row higher. The thing most people are doing when making segmented forms always seem to go with the 1/3 princeple that is the feature ring is on a line 1/3 from the top.I do not always agree with this theory because if you are out a little the piece can look so so. Lifting the ring up gives you some leeway
and the feature ring would have to be extremly complex if a slight curve would spoil it. A lot of feature rings at times do not follw the form and are a little on the flat side and this is a no no. Enough ranting. A very well executed turning and good choice of form. Will be looking out for more of your work Regards Roger in RSA
