Hi, They look great! How do you prevent tear out on the open segmented portion?

Oni, I minimized the tear out on the trailing edge by using sharp tools, fairly high turning speed and the grain running in the right direction.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment.

Wow! Another beautiful piece. You are either the most prolific turner I’ve ever seen or you post a lot of finished projects only on the days I happen to check in here.

I like these turnings Keith, I haven’t seen this style before. How does it get the name Oriental?

John, I have given it the Oriental name simply by open segmented pattern which has the Oriental look. You can vary this pattern in so many ways.
