      Stunning. Love the grain pattern. The black and yellow accent sets off the vase.

      That is Superb and the Yellowheart looks the a wonderful Golden Ring. :):):)

      Beautiful! How did you manage the combination of segmented rings with the maple piece? The segmented rings are stable, but doesn't the maple change shape slightly with the humidity?

      It does not look like any of it is segmented just rings glued together. If it is thin enough and depending on the way it was cut there could be very very little movement.

      I have done segment featured rings on mesquite bowls (solid). After 8 years the bowl shows no signs of breaking apart.

      imo, the key is to use a wood that is stable (for the solid turning). Second, is a good finish to minimize the impact of humidity. Third, keeping the finished piece in the same part of the country. (Not sure how well it would work to make a vessel in AZ and then ship to Florida.)
