I have been looking at trying my hand at segmented turning for a little bit, so I thought I’d give it a try. I cut the wedges at a 30 degree angle, 12 wedges per ring. I made a wedgie sled to make the cuts. Thank you “rockmolsen” for posting your sled, and for posting the site where I got the plans to make my own. http://segeasy.com/index.html
This was just a test piece so I just used scrap 2×4 pine but it turned out better than I thought it would so I made a top to finish it off. The top is more pine with a Purple Heart knob.
-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
