I was able to accomplish this turning because of the timely instruction and encouragement of my friend and neighbor, Jim Glynn. (Turners will know of his work because of its uniqueness and beauty. visit his site to view CARVED segmented turnings.)
This is my first large piece and contains maple, oak, and mahogany. Its 13 inches tall with a 11 1/2 ” diameter. 5 1/2 in base with 273 total pieces.
My first “successful” attempt making the chevron feature ring with the extremely precise joinery. fun, fun !
sanded with all grits between 60 and 600 , not fun, NOT FUN
Any suggestions y’all might give to shorten this drudgery would be appreciated. 3 coats of waterlox finish was very easy and looks great.
A christmas present for my lovely wife who supports my hobby I suspect because it keeps me occupied in the shop and out from underfoot each day. (:
