Beautiful Work!

Can’t imagine how you can create such tight joints.

I really appreciate all of you who can do these segmented projects. They look so cool and interesting. I don’t have the patience.

Great looking vase.

Nice looking vases, are they made on a lathe?

Beautiful, beautiful. How was the sycamore to turn and sand? I have a bit of it squirreled away, and I recall it really wants to fuzz badly, even with a cabinet scraper.

yes they are turned, i use glue that we buy in bulk (55 gallons) at my mill that we use to produce drawersides, cutting boards, panels and so on. Usually fuzzing means the wood is not dry or cutting edges arent sharp enough, i sharpen my own chisels and keep them very sharp, sands very easy.
