Testing the water for interest - Segmented Tutorial

Hello everybody. In case you haven't seen I've been working on a segmented vase in another thread in the woodturnign forum. I have posted some step by step pics there, but I really didn't go into too much detail.

I am getting ready to start the process all over again, and was wondering if there would be any interest in a very thorough description of how you can go from start to finish with a segmented piece. I'm by no means any sort of expert like many are on here, but I know a lot of people kind of shy away from segmented work because it seems so foreign, but after my first try I would love to help people into a whole new realm of woodturning. Let me know what you all think!

- Matt

Haha, no kidding there. I wouldn't call myself OCD per say, but I know if it's something I'm putting a lot of detail in purposely, it would be at its very least thorough.

always interested in tutorials. Either to learn how to do something or to learn how others do things differently. I'm interested.

I'm not sure I have the patients to ever try segmented work, but I admire the heck out of you guys that do it. I love looking at it and would definitely follow the thread if only out of fascination.

Hey guys, I'm starting on this now. The first thing I'll be demonstrating is figuring out how to make a plan for a segmented piece from a gallery picture of a finished piece. I don't know if this is going to be useful for a lot of people, but it's how I made the vase, and could be useful for people I think. Hope to have the diagramming phase up sometime soon!

Matt, thanks for doing this, I read that you have access to your schools wood working shop which has just about any power tool available. A lot of us have small shops that are not fully equipt. One piece of equipment I don't have is a drum sander to sand all the segments flat and to the same thickness. When you get to this step can you please offer an alternative for sanding the segments...thanks.

I'll try my best to think of a new way. Like I said, I'm still pretty new to all of this, but I'm sure there is a way.
