My first attempt at segment turning. Overall very pleased there was no design in idea for this just some scrap wood glued up. Its going to be a small lamp in the end. Going to continue to do this type of work I have gone nuts with my lathe since I got it the end of last year. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas they use in segment turning I’m all ears. Need to find a software so I can design them on the computer first.

Great looking turning, first or not, still well done. My only suggestion would be don’t listen to me. Looks like your on your way to some nice turnings. Once you start on a lathe, the other tools collect a lot of its dust.

That’s one wild looking design. Design program I use and like is 3-D pro. Also check me last project, a sled for cutting segments.

Woodturner Pro is good, but I have gotten to like Segmented Project Planner (SPP) as well …

SPP has a 10-part series of videos on YouTube that detail use of their product.

That turning is really nice. What’s the overall size of this?
