Segmented Turnings

Something a little different

These are made by cutting sticks of different types of lumber into segments and gluing them into circles. The circles are glued into bowl blanks. The blanks are then turned. Yes, all the little pieces have to be cut too! And it does take significant precision to ensure that the glue joints are not visible. But it's also a great challenge!!
