Very good looking starburst, you definitely must have stayed calm and intense on this project, and you
either love woodturning, or you are a masochist. Sometimes I am not sure which is the main attraction with
my lathe. Thank you for sharing.

One of the keys to good segmented work is tight joinery and you aged this one Jim. Can hardly see any glue lined. Great job. Do you belong to the segmented wood turners forum?
