        Hi Juansierra, There is a very good write up in Malcolm Tibbetts book "The Art of Segmented Woodturning" on page 161. This what I used when constructing my sunrise ring. If you go with it remember to make extra segments as it is easy to mess up during construction. Good luck. Love to see a picture when you finish.

      Hello Bob from sunny Florida USA! I love you basket weave bowls and have a beginners question. How did you get the angled cut on the short pieces ? I have done some similar work but the short pieces have been 90 degrees from the adjacent piece.

        Hi Ernie, thanks for your comment, go to the Segmented turning forum where I explained how I constructed the basket weave rings etc.

      I like your profile picture.I have had in mind to do something similar, with the inset circles.Was thinking of using a copper tooled design or was thinking about some stained glass insert.How thick did you end up with around your inserts and how thick did you start with?
