This my first attempt at a staved piece and my 4th doing segmented items. This was a fun project that was inspired from Malcolm Tibbets book- The Art of Segmented Turning. This is a great book. 41 pieces made from walnut and red oak. This is a combination of solid base, stave sides and a segmented ring top.

After this project and much much sanding I think my red oak days are limited for turned items. TThanks for looking.

It is lovely. I haven’t started to learn how to turn, but when I do, I want to make things like that. Very cool indeed. How long did it take?

This is a beautiful piece ?how tall is it. The bottom part is constructed in coopering and the top in segmenting style great combination of two diffrent methods of construction.
