My first and only open segment turning

It was an experiment to give the technique a try a few years ago. I placed the segments by eye and you can see some inconsistencies in the opening sizes. The walls are about 3/32" (2mm) thick. I will probably have to buy some segment plates to get better results and save myself a lot of time with the glueing process. It was a fun if not very impressive project.

      Mike, it’s an excellent job of making an open segment vessel without an alignment aid such as a jig or SegEasy plate.

      These projects are fun and they really go quickly. When I conduct my segmenting workshops, I cover many segmenting topics over the two-day workshop but each person builds an open segment vessel because it is something twelve people can start and finish in two days where the same would difficult with a close-Segment vessel.

      Very nicely do Mike, only us segmenters would see any variation.

      Thanks Lloyd and Bob. I was happy with the good glue joints. I rough cut the Baltic birch plywood pieces for my wedgie sled today. I hope to get started with the final cutting, routing and drilling tomorrow. Once that is done I will just need to hear from Lloyd about buying the Segment Pro package that was offered. I now have computer with Windows 10 to run the programs on. Do I really need Excel as well?

      Happy New Year,
