This is a large barrel shaped vessel that is going to be used as a cookie jar by the guy i sold it to. It consists of a solid cherry bottom, spalted quartered gum segmented lower and upper, the middle ring is segmented and is cherry and birds eye maple. Also a band segmented walnut between the cherry and gum. The top ring is a solid ring of cherry. **Note I am assuming that the lower and upper is “gum” i got the wood out of a 4×4 timber that a load of lumber came into my mill on and between my father and uncle both of which have 30yrs plus in the lumber industry came to the conclusion that it is something southern probably gum, until otherwise told with a definate reasoning from someone i will continue to do so.

Your segmented turnings are gorgeous. This is my favorite one so far. Makes me really wish I had a lathe!

-- Happy woodworking!

What a nice turning. What glue do you use for the segments?

WOW. Beautiful contrasting woods. Love this peice. I am hopefully going to get a mini lathe this summer, and take up turning. Mostly some simple pens/bowls.

Your segmented works are just wonderful! The glue-ups must be a sight to behold. Great finish on these as well. Thanks for sharing them!

Hi Barlow,

This is beautiful. I especially like the maple and cherry in combination. This is an exceptional turning.

Thanks for sharing.
