    How to make "Complementary" Segments with a wedgieless sled?

    Greg, please correct me if I am wrong but I disagree that you have to flip every other piece to eliminate the error. If you draw a line along the top front of your board your cutting, the line will alternate from the front of a segment to back of the segment. Your line will always be on top of...

    Segmented Pro question

    I think you will do yourself a disservice by taking off one guide. The whole purpose of the segeasy sled is to have perfect joints. By using the cut and flip method you are at the mercy of how accurate the fence is set to give you the perfect angle. Being off the slightest amount will accumulate...

    Hello mcgee. Try this link Title: Closed Segment Project 1441 This bowl I did a full follow along of my process. As you will read my thing in making the rings is to ensure that they are round. Any variance will make it difficult to get good alignment. Let me know if the link does not work or if...

    gaps between rows

    If after you add a ring to a bowl and it is not running true there is nothing wrong with taking a light cut with your bowl gouge to flatten the ring. Then a very light touch with the sanding board should do the trick.

    Nice color combo. I especially like the soft top edge that has been lightly rounded over.

    Second Self Designed Segmented Bowl

    One thing you did touch on was the fact that some rings are not quite round therefore you increased the wall thickness to give yourself some latitude. By the ring not being quite round you will find that you will get into alignment issues as well. What I have been doing with thin rings is...

    Feature rings If you haven't looked at this thread have a read. I did do the Eagle bowl and on the first try I was not at all satisfied. The second attempt went much better but as Gary said attention to details is extremely important. As Mike said it...
