This is a pair of open segment vases. I posted an open segment vase like this a month ago and got a request from a few friends for one, not wanting to make the same thing again I changed the woods used. They are 9”W x 11”H, 40 segments per ring, the first is maple,walnut,cherry,yellowheart and bloodwood, the second is maple, walnut and yellowheart.

Astonishing work. Would love to see some “under construction” pix.

WOW! Beautiful vases. Easy to see why you got requests! I browsed through your projects and saw one stunning piece of art after another. The basket illusion plates are magnificant!

I wonder how long it might take to prepare all the rings and glue these up… worth any effort anyway!

I need know how you did these. I am dumbfounded. Facinating result whatever technique you use. 40 segments per ring – so that is what, 2,000 or 3,000 pieces. Do you cut them all at once? How do you stay organized. My head spins just thinking about it.

Absolutely extraordinary. Very meticulous work. Reminds me of a pitcher and bowl that was shown on the front of Woodturning Design some months back. Good job.
