This is one of three segmented turnings I submitted for acceptance in our local craftsman guild. The mug is
3 3/8 inches tall and 3 3/4 inches at the base and lip. The woods are Spanish Cedar and Red Heart. Counting the 3 piece handle and bottom it is made up of 100 pieces. The finish is paste wax over Poly Coat.
Oh by the way I was accepted.
Comments are always welcome

Great looking cup. I like the redheart with the spanish cedar. Nice accent.

Very nice. I haven’t done any segmented turning just yet but it’s on the list for the future.

Nice bit of turning by the way, I see you are right into segmentation, :)
