Awesome work. Someone will love it!!!Lola Ranch said:Here is the latest in my series of coopered segmented turned boxes. Lots of hours go into these but they are fun to make and a great way to use up all the little pieces of scrap wood around the shop.
I stacked alternating 1/8" x 2" strips of walnut and maple together to make a chunk about 2" x 2" x 1'. Then I cut through this at a 45 degree angle making 3/8" wide (approx) strips which I then glued back together after alternating the angle direction. Then I cut those chunks into strips and then mitered them into segments for the ring. You have to be somewhat careful about planning your cuts so as to get the peaks to line up nicely.Absolutely beautiful! How did you create the intricate saw tooth design?
I had to think about this question. Which of the fifty or so glue ups are you wanting a photo of? I can show a photo of my ring glueing clamp, which is a modified band clamp.Very nice indeed. Do you have any pics of the glue up?
Sorry I was a bit unspecific. I was so impressed by your bowl (urn, vase?) and I was interested in how it was made. The part I'm most curious about is the middle part, the one that looks as it's coopered.
