    Laser made segments

    I haven't posted in a while because I've been busy on other things. I have recently made 2 vases with open segments made on my Muse laser. I found that the creation of a segment design to cut only takes about 2 minutes which allows you to make as many of that size as you want. The cutting is...

    I'm Dale Maxim from Gladwin Michigan. I've been turning since I retired in 2002. I have a Nova DVR lathe along with a CNC router and a Lignotec attachment. With these two machines I can do some rather unusual turnings. I'm not great at it but I like doing different stuff. I have done some open...
