Sorry about the duplication! I don’t know what caused this to happen.

Simple project but learned more about segmented turning. Now on bigger and better turning ;-P

Maple (soft) and Walnut woods represented here, both are from limbs I milled earlier this spring.

This is my first attempt at turning anything segmented. While not all that complicated I did discover the need to have perfectly matched mating surfaces? The smallest gap ruins the piece, yep this is not my first attempt but my first success ;-D Not sure who in the family will claim such a large key bob, but I am sure someone will.

I know what you mean about flat surfaces for gluing. Success is hard to come by, but worth it.
Nice job

MSGT, try gluing vertical lines just off center and mill a pen, they have a very unique look. Check out a few of my recent post on turnings to see what I am talking about.

These both look great. I too have been playing around a bit and like most of the outcomes. Have fun and can’t wait to see what else you come up with.
