On woodturningonline.com, about a year ago, I found Dennis Burgess, an excellent English segmented turner who had his own site to show his projects and I liked all his work in particularly (Inserted Segments). I invite you to visit his site to see it under ‘My Projects’ http://www.denswoodturning.co.uk/ . I loved it so much that I wanted to try it myself, and I wanted to do it my way. He started with a solid blank and used the router to cut those twelve 90 degree corners, in a special jig he had built himself. I segmented it as shown in the plan I drew and followed.
I am realy satisfied and happy with the result. While I was working on this one, I started working on Vase On Tripod and it happened the second vase finished before the first.
Here, I would like to thank Den for allowing me to use his idea and you for looking.
NOTE: On Den’s site, Other Turners, you will see some of my work under Sam Shakouri, Sydney, Australia.
