    It was fun to build the design in Segment Pro but it is even more fun to build each row and watch the pattern emerge.

    Most likely.
    This summer is a transition summer. We hope by fall to be full time in SCW, AZ. Trying to close a deal on a house. Then we go to sell two. There will not be much time for wood working. I hope to build a jig this fall.

    Your post and Glenn is helping me out a bunch.

    Thanks Bob, the next row the red starts to overlap the yellow. That will be tomorrow.

    I know it is advantageous to turn the inside as you go but is there ever a point where you rough turn the outside before the glue up is complete? Even just to smooth the corners?? Just curious.

    Row 15 was flattened, inside diameter marked and the previous 5 rows were turned.

    Nice pattern and colors Glenn really starting to pop.

    Thanks Bob. Instead of watching the glue dry today I think some yard work is in order. But only while the glue dries!

    I turn the outside as I go down to the glue line (knock off the corners) mainly because I've been nicked by them coming around while I'm turning. I hit the top row with sandpaper so it isn't quite as sharp until I get a row on top of it. As long as you don't go into the glued area you don't decrease the strength. You also keep it a little better in balance. Just my thoughts.

    Thanks Bluemax, that was basically my thought as well. I did end up doing a bit of rough turning on the outside this morning as well. I first used Power sanding to take the corners down and then used my small Easy Wood carbide cutter to take a bit more. What is your tool of choice? Bob had recommended the Thompsons 1/4 Detail Gouge. I think Tom Lohman uses the Easy Wood as well.
