This is my 1st try at Segmented Turning. The word is precision, all cuts must be exact and precise (11.25 Degree angles for the 16 segments per ring). There are 10 rings not counting the feature ring (Thunderbird ring). The Thunderbird ring is made up of purpleheart, curly maple, and walnut, glued together in 8 segments.
I had to make this ring over a second time, as the 1st was a flop.
All of the wood is left-overs from other projects. All in all this was a fun learning experience, and I may have been bitten by the bug.
The total time taken was over a month. Part of that time was building fixtures and adjusting them for the proper angles.
-- Measure twice, cut once, and hope for the best.
