I would use 1/2 inch. Do it a second time and set it at 3/8 to see if there is any real difference. Aug 29, 2018

      have some oak that's 1/2 thick but naturally it is 7/16 thick. My question is do I set the segmented pro at a thickness of 0.5 or 0.375 ? Thank you in advance. Bob

        Woodsmith. Don't confuse wood thickness of your stock with what you use in the software. The SP ring thickness would be what you want the final thickness of the rings to be for your vessel.

      Hello Stuart. Can I ask a question?

    I started off my woodworking in 1998 with some beginner handtool courses. These ranged from simple dovetailed boxes to craftsman style rocking chair. Somewhere along the line I got interested in woodturning but know where to find decent green wood. I started following woodturning on the old REC group and finally found segmented turning. I now spend half my shop time turning, half my time doing flat work and what seems like another half cleaning up so I can find my tools. I have no set agenda and being retired I work on whatever I want. This means I have a lot of unfinished project and I have been known to stick a piece of wood on the lathe and turn it into a toothpick just for fun.
