This is my first Segmented Turning of any real complexity. You can see in a couple photos that I had to drill-and-dowel the lid due to a minor separation between pieces. (What?? There’s no such thing as a MINOR separation in a Segmented Turning!) It consists of 149 pieces and is friction polished. Ambrosia Maple, Canarywood, Walnut, Cherry(?). Oak. Veneer of Unknown Species. The bottom is what I believe to be White Oak, and the knob is, as I recall, Hickory.
The final photo shows it with the two small vases that gave me the courage to get into this milieu.

JoeinGa, Here’s what happened: I made a vase, kinda like the two in the photo with this piece. It said to me, “Woodsmith, I need something on top. A flair of sorts. I feel incomplete”. So I made a single ring of plywood, of all things, glued it on top, turned it into a flaired opening. I stood back and said, “Wow. Look what I know how to do.” Then, I started schooling myself on the matter – watching YT videos (see Ron Brown, Don Russell), Closely examining others’ pieces. What I found most helpful in getting my mind wrapped around the technique is the WoodTurnerPro Segmented Turning software. There’s a free trial on it. It’s cheap after that. The most valuable thing about paying for it is the one-on-one access to the designer of the program, who’s passionate about it and pleased as punch to help. In short, the best way to learn to do something is to do it, without a care in the world about how it turns out. That is, the process is the thing, infinitely more than the outcome.
Thank you all.

Ships are safe in harbor. But that’s not what ships are for.
