I bought a lathe off of Craigslist a couple months ago and now I understand why people say woodturning is so addictive. There are so many new projects I want to try. I started out simple and made some Harry Potter wands as gifts, a small bowl, and some pens.
At the same time, I still enjoy traditional woodworking. With that, recently I have become more and more interested in segmented turning, whether it be segmented bowls or pens. Like my other projects, as much as I want to start out with some super fancy segmented bowl and try to be Frank Howarth, I think its better to start out simple and go from there, so I made a laminated square plate. I figured I would practice this first before I do a bunch of math to try make sure the angles add up for a segmented bowl.
The plate is 7” by 7” and is made of maple and mahogany scraps that I rescued from a local cabinetmakers scrap pile soon to be kindling for his campfire. I finished the plate with wipe on Polyurethane.
