I’m a sucker for having to try things I see. My latest thing has been a “OATS”. This is a term given this technique by the only one I know of that uses it; George Guadiane
“OATS” is an acronym for Off Axis Triangle Stave segmenting. A brief description as follows:
In this construction, I use 8 triangle staves oriented as shown in the picture above. None of the joint seams align with the center point. The illusion of curved segments result when the final form takes shape. You can see Georges web site at this address: http://www.turnedbygeorge.com/index.html
Now on to my Stave with a twist:
You now know how: Maple and Cherry is the what, piece is 6” by 5” and is finished with a couple of coats of WaterLux. Thanks for having a look.
