This was a fun project using scraps of Red Cedar and Silver Birch. The box/bowl or whatever is 6” diam.
and as I have just started playing with segmented projects I am quite pleased with the result. Any hints or
suggestions with segmenting would be appreciated.

Bob, Personally and by what I THOUGHT segmentation was, you are insulting this fine project.
I also want to point out that I am not hocking my work here on your thread. It’s just the easiest way for me to explain it.

I have been using the word segmentation and was taught segmentation is when you take a piece of wood, (One piece) cut it up and put it back together again as in this project of mine here at LJ’s (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/6517)

What you have done here is sooo much nicer than segmentation (or at least what I was taught segmentation was)

This is interesting to me. I would love to see what other Lumberjock’s say about segmentation. I really believe there is another name for what you have done here. I suppose someone will say what’s in a name :) however I for one would like to know if I indeed have been writing about segmentation here on Lj’s and on my blogs all wrong! LOL!!!

This is very nice Bob! Great job!!!

It is nice segmented lidded bowl and as you are a biginer in segmentation, it is very nice try. I have only few friendly notes for the future projects.
1- Your segments need to be tighter. I know it is very hard because many factors (not only presice angle) are needed to be really tight, which are almost impossible to be achieved in a home workshop.
2- To achieve that, glue half of segments in each level (or ring) to make two arches. The ends of each arch must be on stright line, if they are not, put the arch against sanding disc to stright its ends. Then glue the arches together, end ot end. You may call this tactic CHEATING, but it is the only way with the available equipments you and I have.

Thanks for the comments. That’s how I have been doing it Sam but need to make a sledge for the table saw and get the angles accurate. Will keep trying. Thanks for the info.

Hi Allison, You might have opened a bucket of whatever here and it will be interesting to see what the gurus have to say. Maybe we might have to ask them if we don’t get a response. Did a quick look on the net and segmenting means so many things, even cutting an orange is segmenting.
Back to the wood working though and the traditional way was as you say, cutting up one piece of wood and rejoining to make one object, e.g. using a board and ending up with a bowl or something else.
I then looked up segmenting in wood turning and there are various types of wood used in bowls etc. and going through the projects on this site, members title their bowls of many woods segmented. I like B13
suggestion of MOSAIC as it means something else I have achieved. LOL. By the way I liked your crocodiles. Nice work.

Nice looking box only suggestion I have is when gluing your rings offset the glue joints this gives it a stronger joint and also a better appearance. just my opinion

Thanks again for the comments. Good point Tom, I was only thinking of the pattern, does look a bit fragile.
