First segmented piece using angled staves. It took me quite a while to figure out the right setup for the compound angle cuts. After several failed test cuts, I finally figured it out. The wood is cherry, maple, white oak and rosewood.

Great looking vase. The artist in you is showing. I have been turning segments for a long time and you just gave me incentive to learn stave cutting. All your fine projects are right up my alley. Thanks

I’m just getting into segmented work, and I can only admire this and hope that someday I can come close to this kind of quality. Angled staves, with compound angle cuts. My goodness!
Just stunning, and absolutely beautiful!
