This one came straight from Malcolm Tibbet’s book on segmented turning. I wanted to try the techinque. My version is made of cherry, bloodwood, maple, and ebonized walnut.

Outstanding turning. Just love these segmented pieces. Am trying to do another one myself (but not as many pieces as this!)

Outstanding job. Keep it up.


-- Scrap Wood's the best...the projects are smaller, and so is the mess!

Fantastic Tom. I went in to see some of your other stuff including the open segment ones. All very nice. Looks like you are enjoying yourself. Keep up the good work!

These segmented turnings are so striking! I’m in awe of them every time I see one posted. Beautiful work!

Excellent turning. I too have Tibbett’s book and his influence in your projects is unmistakable. You may have to write your own book.
