« Part 1: Live in the shop Part 2 of Woodturning...a new Segmented Vase series no next part

This video tutorial focuses on mortising the base. Eventually, this section will be reversed and the mortise being made will provide a dovetail-like opening that the chuck’s jaws will grip.
There are 3 sections of the segmented vase. Ultimately, all 3 sections will be glued together to form a vase that will be 9” x 12” when finished. There are 18 rings and 24 segments in each ring. (432 total segments).
