I saw a video on Youtube titled, “Meldrum’s masterpieces” which displayed various unique segmented turnings. I had to make one for myself. This segmented method was more time consuming than the usual segmented turnings I have done in the past. Hollowing was a challenged because the opening is only 1 1/2” wide. Made from maple and walnut; sealed with shellac and then 12 coats of water based poly. Wet sanded, polished, and waxed.

The combination of the segments and the final shape go together well! Beautiful!

That’s wild! I’m still trying to wrap my head around how you glued up the blank… any tips?!? :)

That’s crazy bud, love watching the progress on this. Mad skills on the lathe. I tried ruining a bowl this morning with a nice catch on a shear scrape. One more cut. Lol

WOW. Stunning and Sensational.
Fabulous design and colour combination. It really had me stumped until I read your blog.
As I said there, I’ve seen the design in Patchwork Magazines, but never thought it could be adapted to woodturning.
Thank you so much for sharing this with us.
What a start to the New Year!!!!!


-- 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.

Very cool! Thanks for the blog as well. I might have to try this. I just watched the Bruce Meldrum YouTube video again. Now that I see how you did the glue up I can see how he did some of his turnings but there are some that I still cannot wrap my mind around.

-- Nathan, TX -- Hire the lazy man. He may not do as much work but that's because he will find a better way.
