This is the second “test” that I have done with segmenting. From here on in I’ll be using nicer woods (not that pine isn’t nice, it’s just is not my favorite thing to turn). The lid is pine and a little bit of mahogany, the body is pine with a dowel in the middle. I don’t know if am 100% sold on fully segmented projects, but I do think that having a solid wood project with a segmented element would be up my alley (oak bowl with a segmented lip on it or something like that). I’m also going to start putting some thinly cut pieces of wood (wood veneer) between the segment’s I’m hoping that will help hide the ugly glue lines that I’m getting.
-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
