This is directed to all the woodturners out there. Please take a look at this segmented vase I turned last week. It is only my 3rd turned vessel. It is made from Yellowheart, Wenge and Ebony. Im looking for feedback on apperarance, construction, design, size, shape an so on.

I am just starting to turn so other than “Fabulous” I may not be of help. It looks like allot of thought went into the layout. Maybe someday I will be able to add more, at this point pens and wine stoppers is all I am doing. Need to explore the world of turning, thanks for sharing.

Great design and wood selection. I really like the separation of the woods with the darker veneers, it makes it a real STANDOUT piece.

Not a turner, but i still think that is freakin cool.

It’s nice but you would get a lot more advice is you also post it as a project.

I consider myself to be a reasonably good turner. However, I have never done anything like this. In fact, I have never done a segmented turning of any kind. This is excellent.

I have been turning for a couple months now and I must say I’m impressed with the workmanship. not only did it look great you seemed to manage keeping all the lines in line with the above and below pieces. this impressed me! Color selection is superb in my opinion as I am partial to yellow hues. GREAT JOB!

Kunk, Im responding to your questions about the finish on my blog. I used a laquer based finish called Crystal Coat made by HUT it a friction finish applied while turning and the heat from the friction dries it quickly. I used about three coats. I have tried using the three wax coat buffing system but found it to be time consuming and messy (just me) Like I said before Im new to turning so I dont know what finishes will stand the test of time. How knows… this product Im using could dull in a year. I dont know
