I was wondering if some one could give me a little ok a lot of advice(help) on making up the center design ring for a segmented turning. I understand and know how to do the zig-zag, diamond and other geometric designs. My problem is with putting designs of eagles, bear, kokopelli, etc, but not in a geographic fashion.
Would one use a method similiar to a scroll saw inlay? or is there another method that would serve my purpose. Or do you have to keep the shapes geometric in order to complete this task. I will give you an example of what I’m looking for, Curt Theobald uses an eagle in one of his designs, which is fantastic and I’m sure it takes a considerable amout of work and patience. So how would a design like that be handled and be applied to what I want to accomplish.
I thank you all for any advice on this project I’m attempting.
Thanks again, Augie
