I used this photo to make my own Fibonacci gauge just by converting mm to inches in my prvious post:

You are not fussing with golden mead formular or fibonacci sequence. There is no math just adjust the fibonacci gauge and mark lines on the project and start turning.

You can also make these gagues any size you want or buy them in different sizes: https://www.woodpeck.com/fibonacci.html

Use this link because video explains use lot better than I can! If want to be a fuzzy butt and do the math go for it, but think video explain why don’t have too! Just use what works for you!

Started this thread to get turners to think about ratio’s & proportions and turning pleasing form without much fuss. That You Tube video posted earlier kind of tells why golden mean not absolute and not always used in designing everything.
