Nice job, I haven’t seen an open segment glued up in a staircase pattern.

That is very interesting, I am glad your first segmented turning came out looking so good.

Thanks for sharing.

I love the Stair Step design with the mixed woods. It turned out great!

The stair step pattern is neat. I like it. I have yet to try open segements,. Just getting my feet wet into close segments. Outstanding job on your first try.

Not that I’m a turner by any means but I think you did a great job like the staggered block look.

Great job, I like the various contrasting woods used

Unusual design, very nicely executed, well done

Looks like there are holes in it… Yes?

I think that would call for SUPER Sharp tools and a very delicate technique… Yes?

Very nice!


Thank you!
