  1. Dizzy Bowl - My Version

    Isn't it amazing how you can leave your computer in the house with a plan firmly set in your mind, walk to the shed and begin construction, and finish up with something which vaguely resembles what you planned to do. BUT, I love it and I hope you do too. So, it's not a mistake, just a new...
  2. Segmented Bowl

    Finished this today, my first segmented piece in a while, so was good to get it finished. I have to admit that this one was a real learning curve for me, with things happening that wont happen again. There are 12 segments in each ring and the longest segments are 3inch + on the feature and top...
  3. Composition 8, Kitchen Organizers

    Hi LJ, Getting around to posting some of my finished projects from this past school year for your viewing pleasure. This project was executed in a 3Dimensional Design course at Pratt Institute, and focused around creative phsycial products beginning with visual abstraction. Basically...
  4. Candy Dishes

    I made these pretty quick for our show this weekend in Weston, FL along with the others I had accumulated. I was playing around with different size segments in a layer so it wouldn't look boring! Let me know if it makes a difference? I am trying to play with different sizes so I wouldn't have to...
  5. Money Box

    This box did not start off as a money box. It was just an attempt to do a segmented turning. The problem is I'm not sure what the wood is because I put it aside months ago as I did not put enough hardener in the epoxy or did not mix it well enough (a lesson to be learned). As a result the glue...
  6. Segmented Urn - Something different

    The inspiration for this piece came from the cover of a Woodturning Magazine. Thank you. This piece is made from Tasmanian Oak, one of the many Eucalyptus species in Australia. There are 158 pieces, and is sanded to 400 grit. Then dyed with my Air-brush using U-Beaut water base dyes, and...
  7. "Indian Blanket" Segmented Vase

    This is my first attempt at this design, and what a learning curve it was. Although it is not perfect I am really happy with the end result. The vase comprises of 444 pieces and is 7.5 X 7.5inches, sanded to 400 and friction polished with Shellawax Glow. The timbers used are Jarrah and...
  8. Segmented Bowl

    Well, after 40 cutting boards, a segmented bowl seemed like the next logical step in my woodworking journey. Watched the Malcom Tibbet's video collection (Fantastic!!) and figured,...... an easy bowl like this should be within the realm of possibility. Turns out, really not that difficult but...
  9. Dyed Tasmanian Oak Segmented Vase

    This is 19 rings of 12 segments each plus the base making a total of 229 pieces. It is 13.75in tall and 7.75in wide. The dye was applied with an air-brush while the lathe was spinning (178rpm). Sanded to 400, then dyed and sprayed with lacquer. Wall thickness is 1/4 - 5/16in. Hope you like it...
  10. Segmented Bowls With Perspex Inserts

    These 8" bowls are made from Aussie red cedar, pine & camphor laurel. They have perspex inserts near the top, a bit of a feature that lets light in. Getting the perspex to adhere to the wood was not easy using 2 pack epoxy. This caused a couple of throw offs on the lathe when doing the initial...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I thought this was worth sharing from the DensWoodTurning website. http://denswoodturning.co.uk/segmentcalculator.php .
  12. Woodturning
    This is a new method of Segmented woodturning I have been working with for about a year. Take a look it has many possibilities way beyond what I have done.
  13. Woodturning
    I am a brand new member. I do all kinds of woodworking- small furniture, breadboards, pens, and turned bowls/vases/platters. My current interest is in turning segmented bowls and vases. I have a weggie sled and a separate sled for doing stave vases. Recently, I came across some vessels made...

    Start of some fun. Hi people, I have started working with segments amongst all the other things that I do. This is a very interesting and challenging thing for me, and I think that I was conned by my mate "Rockbuster" into trying this. He is so good that I just had to have a go myself. This...

    What do 2299 segments look like after turning? Interesting you would ask such a random question! I suppose there could be several answers to this question though… but here's mine. if you arrange them just so, they will look a little like this: This project has pretty much consumed me for the...

    A Segmented Sculpture In an attempt to push my segmenting skills, and release some pent up artistic desires, I've started work on a sculpture. Not wanting to bother with building something functional, I decided to focus just on the form aspect of the piece. I drew out the design on graph paper...

    Jarrah, Tasmanian Oak, Brown wood and Maple veneer. Well, the first in this series was a little on the ordinary side, that is not very creative, so it was time to step up a little and try something that quite frankly scared me. But the result will be rather nice if I do say so myself. This is...

    A simple Formular for Segmented Angles Here is what I came up with using my basic understanding of algebra. The angles for segments are taken from the outside edge rather than from the centre for good reason but they are related to the angle from the centre of a circle. Without boring you with...
