The first pics are of a small plate made from oak rescued from the woodpile, plus some walnut and bloodwood scraps that were handy. My purpose in making it was kind of a prelude to moving on to segmented turning. I’ve been fascinated, yet intimidated by segmented turning and easing up on trying something serious with it for months. I’ve made segmented pens, whistles, and other small spindle pieces, but nothing requiring precise measurements or angles. Now that I have a good table saw (Grizzly G0690) and an Incra miter gauge all set up and tuned up, I’m feeling like I might be able to make the proper cuts to give it a go.
Second bowl is nothing fancy, just another piece from the firewood pile that fit into the “too good to burn” category.
Both pieces are finished with BLO… and snow. (Oops, I dropped it.) The sunny weather today is glorious!!
