Woodturning has taken its hold once again. In this video we are back at the wood lathe with our turning tools working on a new woodworking project, a segmented vase of 18 rings and 432 segments. You’ll see the woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this segmented vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut.
When the actual woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate the sanding process and prepare for finishing the vase. Initially, Sealcoat shellac sealer is used on the vase (inside and out). Once the sanding sealer has dried it is then time for a light sanding with 400 grit sandpaper. Next the dust is removed and we are ready for an application of Arm-R-Seal satin finish. (numerous applications of the wipe on satin finish will be applied to the completed vase.)
(Note: all segmented wood has been glued with the same grain direction to allow for wood movement.)
