Topic tags/keywords: question

I am just curious.

What happen to the inside of the segmented vase? Does it stay rough or does it get turned too?

I do not turn but I have seen the inside of these segmented vases and on the whole are as smooth as the outside…

I turn the inside of a segmented piece as smooth and nice as I would any other project.

It’s going to need long tools and imagine there will be a lot of of vibrations…

Thanks for answering

I always turn the inside it needs to be finished just like the out side. the good thing about segmented turning you can do it in sections and then glue them together as you go along. that way your don’t have to turn so deep.

Thanks tommyd,

I see all these great turned projects and I was wondering how they do it.

Yesterday I stumbled upon a blog on segmented bowl and boy it is a lot of work.
From cutting the single segments, glueing the rings etc… I now admire those turners.
It is a lot of work.

I think I am going to enroll in few turning classes to learn the basics.

the inside needs to be as smooth as the outside. each time you put another ring on the base you have easy excess to the inside. at one point someone looks inside and feels it: it would be a shame to find out that the inside is rough
