WOW…... I love it. I can’t wait to get back in my shop and get some segmented bowls and vases started. I think I’ll favorite this one.

Really beautiful!

Anybody know offhand if there is a good blog on segmented turning? Not being a turner, I’d just like to see how it’s done.

Barlow this is a really nice turning. You have a nice wood selection and it “turned” out beautifully.

I had the same thought as Charlie did. As a non-turner I think it would be nice to see how this is done. Here is a video of a segmented bowl being turned.

And Keith Cruickshanks has several videos on the processes involved with creating a segmented turning.

CharlieM1958 & Scott Bryan – you may want to check out

We just started the blog and only have a handful of articles right now but will be adding a lot more in the next few days. Also, in the next few weeks we hope to have segments for sale in 4 sizes and 4 different species for guys that just want to turn (and not spend time cutting segments).

And Barlow- this is truly a beautiful piece of work!

I don’t do any of this sort of work, however I love to see it. Very creative and beautiful. Great ability. Very cool!
