My latest segmented turning.

I'm not done yet but I'm impatient so I'm posting it anyway. This is another in the set of 3 that have this similar feature ring. I like the pattern so much that I made enough pieces to do more than one. This one is Curly Maple, Bocote, Mahogany and Gabon Ebony. It's somewhere around 625 pieces. As of now there is one coat of Tung oil. Please enjoy.

Here's a segmented turning newbie question. Do you glue up the entire vessel and then turn, or do you do several layers, turn, add several layers, turn...?

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

You guys are great. Thanks very much. When i do a turning like this, I turn a top 1/2 and a bottom 1/2. This one was divided at the top of the feature ring just below the ebony. The Glaser 1" scraper was my tool of choice to do most of it. Along with my Glaser 15V bowl gouge and a couple of my QC mini. When you split it in two, it's like turning 2 bowls. Goes real smooth. I also use a variety of truncated cones that assist in alignment of the rings. Definitely a big plus for ring alignment.

Definitely an awesome job. What size is it? How many parts per ring?

Wow! Now that is nice!

How tall is it and is it the same thickness all the way to the bottom?

Again very nice and you got a “Ooh Wow!” out of my wife as well. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks very much. The builder rings are 16 segments. The feature ring has 343 pieces. I just did a count and I think te total count is 535 segments. I'll have to measure it tonight when I get home.

Wow. I don't even know what to say. I'm excited that I'm finally learning how to use my skew chisel and you post something as beautiful as this. Fantastic work. I'm blown away.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Your turnings blow my mind bill. Nice work.

I can see why you like that feature ring so much, it's got great character to it. Beautiful as always!

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

Just came in from doing some more finish work on it.

Thanks very much everyone. It measures 9-1/2 inches tall X 8-1/2 in diameter. It starts at an 1/8" then below the feature ring it goes to about 3/16". The center of the feature ring is at 5 inches. I counted again and found I forgot the 32 vertical segments on the feature ring. That makes the total 567. I think I got it right now.

My friend, if you can use a skew, you're a better turner than me, I can assure you. Every time I try that tool I have about 3 seconds before I destroy something. I'm going to have to get some scraps and just keep trying.

Thanks again.

Wow, great piece Bill. One of the hardest things to get my head around after just starting the wood turning hobby is patience. It seems that nothing beautiful comes quickly. Do you mind sharing how many hours you have in that piece?

I think I have around 16 hours so far. The finish is a couple coats of shellac then when that's dry it will have 4 or 5 coats of Tung oil. I'm at 2 coats so far.

Very nice piece Bill.
We just had one of our club members do a demo today on segmented turning. He specializes in that area and sells his work at high end galleries. Very interesting demo. He went into a lot of detail on cutting the pieces, glueing up, etc. The turning part didn't take too long at all. He figures he spends about 2/3 of the time doing all the cutting and assembly work, and about 1/3 doing the turning and finishing.
This is on my list to try. Looks like fun.
