here is a little segmented turning that i made as a gift for someone. hmm i wonder who. you might have noticed it in the videos that i did with Charles Neil but here it is finished. the primary orange wood is paduak. then the foot for the foot and for the two strips in the middle is walnut. then for the detail in the middle is is a mix of yellowheart and tiger maple. this is a beautiful piece and the pictures just don’t do it justice. the flecking in the tiger maple just adds another level of beauty to this think that you can not see in the pictures. its just such a beautiful piece and the finish of 4 coats of arm – r – seal is like glass on it. i just love this piece so much and i hope that you like it too.

Great Job, Denis!

Did you use a press to hold the pieces together while the glue dried?

Denis you should be very proud of this one. Your glue joints look nice and tight. I can’t believe that this is only your second piece. Keep up the good work!!

What’s not to love…. As a guy just getting into turning, it’s this kind of piece that has inspired me. I have been studying the segmented set-up and find this type of turning to be just the nit-ch I have been looking for. The more I see the more I want to give this a try. Although at this point, I just haven’t had a chance to even play around with my new lathe, I hope to some day be in your class….. Great piece, great job… And thanks for keeping me heading in the right direction…. :-)

Merry Christmas to all…..
