Finally got it finished today,
This measures 7.75in tall and is 7.25in wide, and is 172 pieces.
Inspired by a Vase made by Ray Allen. Thank you Ray for the inspiration.
Sanded to 400 grit and finished with Shellawax “Glow”.

This is my 4th segmented piece and I think it turned out OK.
Hope you like it, and Thanks for looking.
C&C welcome as usual.

Bob.

I reckon you got it right also Bob, nice choice of woods and a great finish. Hasn’t taken you long to nail this segmenting game.

Beautifully done. There are many subtle details that make an in-depth viewing a true pleasure. I haven’t done segmented turning but it’s on my list of things I want to do. Seeing project like this really stoke me.

You must feel proud having it complete. It’s a beautiful piece. All the pieces are perfectly in sync. Are the 3 tiny rings cut pieces or just one?
Have a Happy New and enjoy your shop time.

They are separate pieces but were glued to the middle bits to make one ring consisting of 36 pieces.
HNY to you too.

Great looking work on this project Bob. Many will love it for it’s beauty but only a woodworker can really appreciate the many hours and all the moves it takes to get something to look as nice as this. A beautiful display of craftsmanship I must say! Nice Work!
Happy New Year Bob from our house to yours!

Sorry for not commenting on this sooner Bob, guess that I got caught up in our emails and forgot to look on here. It is a beautiful vessel, and you have come a long way in such a short time. Glad to have been a part of this, and happy that you grasp on to it so quickly. Me and Tony will be waiting to see the purpleheart one. Happy New Year to you and the family.

Better than ok, Bob. It’s beautiful and looks very well done. I love to turn but have not settled down to try segmented work. I keep getting big chunks of wood and if I don’t use them, I’ll lose them.
