no previous part Part 1 of Segmented Wood Turning...Staves and Vertical Spacers series Part 2: . »

This unique woodworking project is part of the Let’s Build Series.

For this intriguing, woodworking video tutorial we are once again in the woodworking shop creating a custom wood turning, a fruit bowl for the breakfast room table. The wood we are using is light walnut for the 12 staves, dark walnut for the 12 vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The challenge we face is gluing all 24 segments at one time. For this project we need to be dead-on accurate and focused because it’s a one time shot at success. It’s high stakes woodworking…Win or Lose!…(for more information on this segmented wood turning technique…read

Man O Man…

You sure know to make a complicated thing LOOK so simple!

Did it really work out that perfectly… no trimming the very last connection?
... no tweaking or anything?
You just cut it up, no dry fit, no fuss or muss, just glued it up?! :) :)

If so, you are GOOD!

Thank you for doing what you’re doing…

Have a nice Labor Day weekend! (all of you… out there)

edit: I didn’t need any hearing protection this time… The mic gain must have been turned down a little. :)

Fantastic. I don’t do turning, at all, but I can’t wait for the next installment. I absolutely love your videos. You are a genius at it.

Joe…You’re very welcome! No trimming or tweaking. I taped and dried fit the halves and then turned them over on a flat surface(table saw). All joints were nice and tight and the outside angles were flat to the table saw. Then it was time for gluing. I went for the whole enchilada at one time. (Hope you wore your dust mask and faceshield tho!)

David…People like you make the effort of doing these woodworking videos worthwhile. Thanks for your support!

Awesome!

I bet it wouldn’t work out that way if I did it… Murphy would be at work doing something… :)
