I have looked at all your pictures, enlarged them…And I have scrutinized every joint, every seem and looked at the overall vessile…......... And I can’t see one thing that does not look very well done. The ziz-zag is well thought out and done the way it should be. The contrast in woods works very well….... Wish my first had looked that good. Soon you will be giving lessons.

Now lets see what you can do with the foot. ...

Well Done. and a big welcome to LumberJocks. Just what we need, more segmented turners….. LOL !

That’s amazing. I got a lathe last week, so in a couple decades I hope to be able to pull someting like this off.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. The segment pattern i created was from Malcom Tibbetts book on segmented turning. It is an excellent book, i highly recommend it. I will say one thing, this is sure addicting..
