Project Information

On woodturningonline.com, about a year ago, I found Dennis Burgess, an excellent English segmented turner who had his own site to show his projects and I liked all his work in particularly (Inserted Segments). I invite you to visit his site to see it under 'My Projects' http://www.denswoodturning.co.uk/ . I loved it so much that I wanted to try it myself, and I wanted to do it my way. He started with a solid blank and used the router to cut those twelve 90 degree corners, in a special jig he had built himself. I segmented it as shown in the plan I drew and followed.
I am realy satisfied and happy with the result. While I was working on this one, I started working on Vase On Tripod and it happened the second vase finished before the first.
Here, I would like to thank Den for allowing me to use his idea and you for looking.
NOTE: On Den's site, Other Turners, you will see some of my work under Sam Shakouri, Sydney, Australia.

That is a great site Sam, thanks for sharing. Great looking vase with nice combination of woods. One day I might have time to try one that is after all your other diagrams and projects you have shown.

Very COOL, Sam!

Yep, we know how you do it now… at least from a major standpoint… fine little details can be controlled in a multitude of methods which this project shows… from the other project posted using this technique.

Just plain COOL!

I was thinking of experimenting with the same technique BUT using a router to cut the outside circle… then into the inside of a circular nut tray. Then, going around the outside cutting with a 90* V bit producing even more interesting patterns…

Have you ever done that type of thing?

Thanks again, Sam… you're just awesome!

Very nice, an elegant solution to a difficult insert, the vase is absolutely stunning, as is your approach to constructing it.

Sam, you are something else!
I think I'm a little ways away from that level still, but I know enough to appreciate your expert craftsmanship!
Beautiful work as always.

Very nice Sam. I love your color(species) choices. It appears you used a butt joint for the insert, not a miter as shown in the plans. I think you made the right choice. I also notice that you alternated the direction of the joint in each insert, also a good choice IMO. A well done vase.
