From Packing Case to Segmented Vase and Bowl

Getting a bit more confident with this segmenting game but still using wood reclaimed from packing crates. Don’t know what the light brown wood is but would like a shed full of it. Osage Orange is the only wood not recycled. This project originally was going to be 2 deep bowls when I was experimenting with compound miter angles. Then I looked at Branch’s blog and decided to try a pattern and on it went. Pic 4 shows the two halves before I turned the inside and then glues together. I still have a lot to learn about segmenting but am having a hell of a lot of fun. Pic 5 and 6 is also wood from crates .

They are great projects, Bob. I like the central part of the vase.
That’s all about segmented turning, having fun, excitement and new ideas all the time.
Waiting for the next.

I like your feature ring. and the shape of the piece. As I am also finding out; this segmented stuff is not easy, but a heck of a lot of fun. Keep up the great work.

The sun did not waste it’s energy on that wood. You made it beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

hi bob great vase you are getting very good at this segment turning you did a great job with the feather ring i love it .
your bowl is very nice love the patren in it
what is the height and width of them .
just one suggestion if you stagger the joints it will help to strengthen the piece and look better that just my 2 cents worth

Thanks for the comments, segmenting sure puts the fun into turning. so many things to learn and try.
Hey Branch, the vase is just on 10” and a tad over 6” at the widest. The center ring is just on 1 1/2” high and was one of those things that just happened, nothing planned. Thanks for the hint on staggering,
every 2 cents of knowledge passed on soon adds up.

Wonderful work Bob. The projects look fun and I think I will add this to my to-do list for this year. Great design. I look forward to your future projects and “lessons” :)
