OK, I decided to try my hand at turning a segmented vessel for a change instead of a bowl. As always this was a learning experience and I had a lot of fun doing it. Got a chance to meet Melcome Tibbets in Tahoe on a recent trip there and he gave me some tips on doing the inside of vessels – which helped a lot. I actually wound up parting the roughed vessel and doing it in two pieces then gluing it
back together to finish. Vessel is made of Lace Wood, with accents of Walnut, maple, Wenge, Padauk and white and black vainer. My guess 400+ pieces.

I really like it. Great shape, and the woods you chose work well together.

Very sharp looking feature ring. I like the color combo that you selected. Very balanced.
