Instead of cutting individual segments for this project I laminated the lengths of plywood and red gum dividers and then cut the 12 segments using compound angle adding the vertical dividers as I glued up.
When ready for the lathe I placed it in the Coles Jaw and shaped the opening for the base to be inserted.
Pic. 4 shows how I recess the base to accept the chuck. Have found this a time saver, starting with 9 pieces of wood instead of cutting and gluing approx 100 segments and dividers and the web effect is more accurate.
Bowl is 10” diameter and 4” high.
Has anyone else used this method?
