That is a beautiful drum. How is it made if it is not turned in sections?
Can you show some steps in the process of making segmented objects this way?

i agree with Jim…how!? It looks to be turned in sections, but even then it is still spectacular.

A local bowlmaker, www.swanwoods.com – made his own machine that involves a rotary cutter parting
the rings from a slab. I wonder what your approach is, looking at all your different works, including that
globe in your avatar, all I can tell is that you have a fantastic mastery of cutting correct angles combined
with an artists ability to visualize and make wonderful shapes. Thank you for sharing and challenging us
to attempt to follow. Welcome to Lumberjocks.
