I have always threatened to have a go at segmented turning but was never able to get the angles right and gave up in frustration. But thanks to BRANCH (member L.J’s) for sending me a message that made things sound so simple. Photo’s 4 was my first attempt using red gum, osage orange, huon pine and english elm for base and top. Photo 5 2nd try using red gum, osage orange and elm. Photo 3 I continued experimenting with ply wood and elm. Photos 1 & 2 are Silver Birch and Tasmanian Blackwood, 7” diam at the top cut at 15 degree angle (12 pieces per row).
Being a self taught turner any help from other members would be appreciated.
