This looks like peacock feathers. Is the Jacobean you use a Minwax transparent product? That’s what I use and I love it!

I’ve seen quite a bit of plywood segmenting, but this with the stain & finish may be the most eye catching..nice

That is just amazing the look you can get with segments of plywood. I really like that piece. How many segments to each row and how thick was the plywood to begin with?
Thanks for sharing. I must try that some time just to achieve that look. It sould have a myriad of looks depending on the color too.
It looks like the plywood was laid flat on the top and bottom of the lower section. Is that right?

There are 12 segments to each row of this piece. The ply wood was only 3/4” thick I almost ran into some problems with it getting a little thin so I would either do more segments or do thicker ply wood. The problem with more segments is you would not get to see as much of the pattern that way.

Indeed, this is quite an impressive visual effect for plywood. Very elegant and sophisticated compared to most segmented turnings. I really like this.
