Project Information

Sorry about the duplication! I don't know what caused this to happen.

Simple project but learned more about segmented turning. Now on bigger and better turning ;-P

Maple (soft) and Walnut woods represented here, both are from limbs I milled earlier this spring.

This is my first attempt at turning anything segmented. While not all that complicated I did discover the need to have perfectly matched mating surfaces? The smallest gap ruins the piece, yep this is not my first attempt but my first success ;-D Not sure who in the family will claim such a large key bob, but I am sure someone will.

I know what you mean about flat surfaces for gluing. Success is hard to come by, but worth it.
Nice job

Just finished another segmenting project. This pen turned out very nicely, I think I am going to like this new area I am delving into!!

MSGT, try gluing vertical lines just off center and mill a pen, they have a very unique look. Check out a few of my recent post on turnings to see what I am talking about.

These both look great. I too have been playing around a bit and like most of the outcomes. Have fun and can't wait to see what else you come up with.
