This is 19 rings of 12 segments each plus the base making a total of 229 pieces. It is 13.75in tall and 7.75in wide.
The dye was applied with an air-brush while the lathe was spinning (178rpm).
Sanded to 400, then dyed and sprayed with lacquer.
Wall thickness is 1/4 – 5/16in.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
C & C Welcome.

That is real beauty Bob, like the way you applied the dye and that is a great finish. You sure have the segmenting game mastered.

That’s a big beauty Bob. I’ll have to study this as I am getting more interested in some taller segmented turnings.
Nice work.

Really great work. Love the dye job. Love the shape. Is this oak similar to say a N. America oak.

Hi Vernon,
No Mate, Tassy Oak is actually a Eucalyptus, I think it was called “Oak” because of it’s strength and grain pattern being similar to proper oak lumber.
It’s another one of those COMMON NAME tricks. Like our “Silky Oak”, there are at least a dozen species all commonly called that one name. Very confusing to say the least.
Glad you like it.
Bob

Nice work Bob as always! Your photo make it look very tall if you din’t put the measurements up I would guess it’s 2ft tall. I like the dye and how it fades in.
