Turquoise, staved turned vessel

When I started this one, I blew the top1/2 to pieces. I didn't let it get the best of me this time though. Somewhere around 640 pieces. The woods are Tigrillo (Very toxic I found out)Curly Maple, Walnut & Turqouise inlace. Please enjoy.

I really like the look of the staves, beautiful wood you have there. I'm still trying to build my courage up to try a staved vessle, just haven't had the nerve to work on it yet.

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

Your skills remind me that I may, one day, turn something so beautiful.

Truly awesome.

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Thanks very much everyone. For calculating the angles for a staved turning, I use the charts in Malcolm Tibbetts book on segmented turning. Probably the most advanced book on segmenting there is. Truly a must have book. I plan on making a similar one to this for a contest I'll be entering. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

If any of you want to try a staved turning, I recommend picking up Malcolm Tibbetts book. There's a section in the back that gives you almost any angle and number of staves you might want to try. In addition, if I can be of any help, let me know. Malcolms book is almost like taking a college course in advanced segmented turning. He really goes into detail on many techniques.

Man, I'm glad I clicked on this thread. Very impressive to say the least. Thanks for sharing this one.

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

You guys are too kind. Thank you very much. I'm starting on another one similar to this one. I'll be putting it in a contest called beauty & the beast. It will be the beauty end of it. I'll get back to you on the beast.

Will they accept a team entry? You've got the beauty end of it covered superbly, but I can definitely save you some effort for the other ...

I'm not a "turner" although I have an old 13" South Bend metal lathe and have made some chips with it. I give you guys big creds for being able to turn all the beautiful woods, opposing grains, weird materials etc...an no chip out.
The book is fabulous and contains tip on woodworking in general and for segmented trun specifically. I recommend it to anyone intertested in woodworking just to broaden their knowledge base.....Thanks a lot for bringing it to my attention. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
