A segmented vessel for my anniversary.

My LOML asked for something orange in a vessel. Padauk was the wood she chose. I think it's a bit bright but the wood will turn a softer color over time. The rest is Walnut & Maple and it has about 625 pieces +or- a few. Please enjoy.

I wish I had the patience for segmented work. Awesome as always.

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

That is certainly a fantastic looking piece. Absolutely gorgeous. Happy anniversary to the both of you.

How does this only have 4 replies? This thing is awesome! Seeing some of your segmented work is really inspiring and helps encourage me to keep working on my own skills!

I think it has so few replies because most if the turners, for some reason, don't post their work in the project show case and a lot of non turners miss out on seeing it. I agree though. It's beautiful.

Thanks everyone very much. The fun has just begun though. Lots of nights gluing & gluing & gluing. I'm having turners withdrawls. I want to finish the glue ups for my latest monster and get it on the lathe. More on that soon.

Is there a better place for me to post my work?

2 coats of Shellac and 3 coats of Tung oil followed by Miniwax to give it a soft feel. I really like th enatural look it gives the wood.

Sorry I haven't posted much lately. I'm building an entertainment center, 2 segmented vessels and a feature ring with thousands of pieces for a contest over at segmentedwoodturners.org. Been working on all that + my day job about 14 hrs a day. They say if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. WOO HOO I'll never have to work as long as i live.
