Gerry, beautiful project. I am in awe at the many , many segmented pieces that go into compiling the finished work.
Well done. The thing that always puzzles me with Segmented Turning is, how do you hollow out a piece that is not in a wide open bowl format?
Lovely finish and nice combination of timber.

Regards,

Cliff.

One of the advantages you have in segmented turning is that you are not dealing with a solid block of wood, so the piece can be turned, hollowed and assembled in stages. In this piece, the top third and bottom two-thirds were hollowed, sanded and finished separately (the top also had a faceplate and glue block on it). The two sections were then joined together on the lathe (I have a live center with 1" x 8tpi threads for a faceplate or chuck).

You could glue up the entire stack of rings and use a hollowing tool, but doing it in two sections, IMHO, is a lot easier and produces a better result.

Aha!! Thank you Gerry!!!! That sure makes sense…..I had visions of poking a long curved Chisel inside a narrow top opening and basically flying blind. Your advice is gratefully appreciated and will help me delve a little deeper into the mysteries of Segmented Wood Turning. Many Thanks.

Cliff.
