It is called inserted segments because those sharp ends ovals are added to the ring from outside after the main part of the vase was built as shown in photo 3. It is complicated and long process to achieve this effect but it is one of the challenges I like to do. This is my third project of this kind of segmented turning. I picked up that piece of timber from a recycle timber yard left in an open space under the sun and rain for years, but I knew I could make something out of it. Here it is.

Sam, there is not a piece of wood anywhere in the world that you could not make a work of art from. I think that sounds right.
I love the effect of this style.
I’ve added it to my “To-Do” list, one day.
Thanks for sharing,
Bob

-- 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.

Sam, Beautiful piece!

You say those outside pieces are glued on after the main shape has been formed.
How do you get the Flat surfaces on the lamp body so you can glue the other pieces on?

Just curious…

Looks GREAT!

Thank you!

Sam… How did you get the flat spots flat… sanding… hand planes?

Joe, the main ring is double layered. the segments of the outer layer are cut 60 degrees ,so, the angle between every two segments would be 90 degrees. I used table saw to achieve that. You have to study and read the size of the angles in the figure carefully.

Sam, the last two rings in pic. 3 are being glued to flat surfaces, correct?
... and you are gluing those last two rings AFTER the bowl has been turned, correct?
If the piece was turned BEFORE you added the last 2 rings, how did the turned part get Flat so you could glue the last 2 rings to it?

Looks like, to me that you had to glue those last 2 rings on BEFORE you started turning it…

FIRST STEP: gluing the inner ring ( 75 degrees both sides )
SECOND STEP: gluing the outer ring ( same width but at 60 degrees )
So you will have 90 degree angles , all outside.
THIRD STEP: insert the last parts , the triangles
FIFTH STEP: finish building the vase or bowl the design you like.
THE SEVENTH STEP: mount all lot on the lathe and start turning.
