no previous part Part 1 of Segmented vase series Part 2: Method for making segmented rings »

I have done a few segmented projects and decided to do a blog on the latest. This will be a vase made with maple, paduak, and black veneer. This ring is the second from the bottom.

This is before the glue up.

Dutchy your not the only one.
Starting to build up my lathe tools to start some of these type projects.
Those compound angles will make it very interesting.

Thx bud, as being new to turning I’ll be following this closely. I bought the easy wedges but still need to make the sled. I tried my first bowl the other day, out of Port Orford cedar. Wow I have alot to learn it came out ok but I need help lol. I have always wanted to make segmented vessels. Thx for sharing. .

I’m not an expert at this but will share what I know. One bit of advise; practice making different design rings that you like. Practice makes perfect.

I will follow your progress. I have made a bunch of segmented stuff but find there is always a new or better way to do things. Thanks for sharing.

Nice work Julian
I was looking for the part on how you made the segments/wedges, fasinating design I must say.
