This is my first attempt at a segmented vessel. I got the inspiration from Malcolm Tibbets.
Although I have done other types of turnings this was the first time doing the segmented method.
It was really fun and now I am hooked! I have several designs already to be turned.
This vessel is made of walnut and padauk. The finish is four coats of wipe-on poly and a paste wax.
Pictured is the completed project and some of it in the process. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

Yeah, Padauk is a nice wood. It has a great tone and smells interesting(?). Could do without the red dust clinging to everything. :)
