Amazing work Bill. People are going to find your work 200 years from now and call it a masterpiece example of 21st century segmented turning. They'll go on to explain to wonderous ears that people used to dry things called trees into "lumber" and then cut it into geometrical shapes and glue it together and turn it on a tool called a "Lathe". And your piece will be an example they look at and think, wow, they did that by hand without any robots!

Sorry, it's early and I'm rambling. I love the piece is what I'm trying to say.

You guys are too kind, thanks very much. I often wonder how long my pieces will be a part of society and what will the conversations be. That's just part of the fun though. I'm in the beginning stages of a very complex one now. It'll take a while though. More to come soon.

Wow - I just started learning the lathe and I can not even begin to imagine work like this. Incredible! That is really beautiful.

That is really nice, I have wanted to do something like this for a while now, what are all the different woods, I'm guessing maple, rosewood, ebony, but not sure what the reddish wood is, also what glue do you use. Thank you!

Bill, I think that is about as beautiful as I've ever seen maple. Wonderful piece (again!)

It's a work of art and finely crafted. I've dabbled with some segmented turnings lately myself and I have a lot to learn to reach your level. I think I would have to upgrade my turning equipment as well.

A photo of your lathe and tool rest set up showing a hollowing scaper would be very educational if you happen to have one on hand.

I also use a variety of truncated cones that assist in alignment of the rings. Definitely a big plus for ring alignment.
A photo of the items you mentioned would be greatly appreciated. I don't even know what most of looks like.

Thanks, Bret

No problem.
These are the Glaser miniQR tools. an entire set of turning tools that are interchangeable into one handle. No allenheads or set screws. They can be changed in about 2 seconds by pulling the collar back and swapping the tool head.




This is the round nose scraper. The nicest scraper I've ever laid hands on. There's lead shot inside the handle for dampening and the flute of the handle feels as if it were made just for me.



This is the 15V gouge. It also has lead in the handle for dampening and the metal it's made of stays sharp for a very long time. I usually have no problem getting more that one piece turned before I need to sharpen it. another nice thing....they don't roll away. 8-)




These are the truncated cones. I use them first to align rings to glue and center them in place. Then i turn them around so the flat side can be pressed against the ring for clamping pressure.

This is the rest of the arsenal except the lathe. This one will be coming out next week and a new Powermatic 4224 goes in. That will allow me to turn more intricate segmented vessels.

Thanks Bill Wyko

The photos were very helpful, thank you very much. Those are some nice tools and the new lathe is, well, a lot nicer than mine.

I turned a lot of segmented stuff on a jet mini in the beginning, then went to the 1442. The lathe you have will allow you to let your immagination run wild if you let it. I just went to a bigger lathe so I could turn big diameter pieces. (its the only cure for my addiction to segmenting)
If you ever need assistance trying segmenting, I'm always glad to help. Be careful though, the vortex spins even faster in the segmenting world, it'll suck you right in.

Bill, where did you get your cones from? Are they threaded on the inside?

Right now I just turn some glued up ply down to a cone as needed but wouldn't mind getting a couple of those in the future.

Mark
only 84 more to go...
