Here are two of my most recent segmented projects – as most wood workers feel – you can always find some fault with your work – but generally I’m happy with how these turned out. I’m still not completly satisfied with the tear out on the end grain on some of the turning – but as I continue to work on my segmented bowls I am finding new ways to improve the process. I think one of my biggest challenges is to get the segmented assembly centered so it doesn’t vibrate my lathe too much. Always fun to turn! I used a combination of woods on these two projects. Apricot, Walnut, Maple and Manzanita.
PS. at a request – I added a second picture of the Box with lid moved so you can see the insides.
