Here are three of my latest segmented vessels. The one on the left is walnut with the top ring a mix of maple and pupleheart. The middle vessel is soft maple and bubinga and the third is cherry with the top ring of bubinga and two thin rings of maple Each ring is a 12 segment ring.

I don’t have the sizes handy but they are approximately 7 to 8 inches tall.

Very interesting.
Segmenting sure is fun.
Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice. You have a great talent. I to love to do segmenting. There are so many ways to shape the work. Keep up the great work and keep posting so we can “borrow” your ideas.

First of all, thank you for the many nice compliments about my work. Some of you have asked how I did the feature ring on the maple vessel. Tomorrow I will take a photo of how a segment and show how its done. Its really very simple but a photo will help explain it.

You haven’t missed them. It didn’t get them posted as I haven’t figured out how insert them in a comment. I will work on it this am.

Here is a photo of 2 segments and the glue up of the stock I cut the segments from.the pattern of the ring will determine where it is in the vessel and how much curvature there is in the wall of the vessel. ie, more curvature, the more round the resulting figures will be. The size of the resulting figure will be determined by how much material is removed. When gluing the ring to the vessel, if you want the same size figures all around the vessel, it must be perfectly centered so you remove the same amount of wood from each segment as its turned. You can achieve an interesting pattern by gluing the ring off center. This will make the resulting figures different sizes around the ring.

I hope this helps and I’ve made the process clear. What is fun is gluing up different thickness of different colors, changing the curvature of the vessel etc. the variations are endless.
