Hey Derek, welcome to Lumberjocks. I like your segmented turnings. The shapes are a bit different from the norm but I like the individuality of your designs. Very good work. Thanks for showing them and please, post more.

Love your lathe by the way but i guess you knew that already. LOL I wasn’t aware that the Ova DVR was sold under another name. Learn something every day.

Great job! Your lamination is first class, and it looks like you have used the maximum capacity of your lathe!

The swan design is very nice & I like the tumbling blocks covered pot. If I may be so bold, your shapes are a tad off. there are great resources for shapes for woodturners. Study those a bit and you’ll really have some lovely vessels. Welcome to LJ’s

Nice stuff, really like the designs and fail to see the issue with the shapes.

I would agree with michelletwo on the shape issue. Check her stuff out. She’s got a good eye. On the segmentation side it looks like you have that down well – no easy task I am sure.

Shape of course is somewhat personal so it would be nice for others to chime in here. Maybe Michelle and I are the odd guys out ??

I am sure that there some kinds of established norms for turnings, things that may not look right compared to some standards. I did not notice anything awkward or lack of flow whatever that means. I am guessing this is for your own use and is an expression of who you are and your skill level at this time that seems very good to me. One thing though the fifth one, the one with the finial, a little too many different thing going on for my taste. Please post more.

Love the swan feature ring. I agree with above comments on shapes and forms. That said I’ve never done a segmented turning so elaborate.

Great looking turnings. I like the photo of the swan vase on the lathe. That’s one large vase. Hope you post more project photos or even videos.

I love your designs. :) I’m new at this and am amazed at what a simple spinning motor can do with a bit of effort. Thank you for showing how individual this craft can be. :)

Have your say...
