    I also use the mid size easy wood finisher for some but I also have a set of nano turning tools which has a round carbide cutter ( tool is about 9" long) that works well. Since it is smaller it takes less effort to get a small cut which I think puts less pressure on the bowl. If you search nano woodturning you will find their site. They have some you tube videos as well.They have one nice feature. They sell a sharpening set up for their carbide cutters. When making smaller turnings the tools work well. I use them quite a bit. I don't have a detail gouge but I don't like to use small bowl gouge on open turnings. I don't seem to have the knack for not catching the edge and ripping off a row. I'm not a expert turner like most of you so that probably is the source of my problem. Both of my bowl gouges are ground to the Ellsworth edge.

    "Expert Woodturner" is a bit of a stretch if your referring to me. LOL "Expert Risk Taker" I could buy. I will typically pick a project that is way beyond my normal just to push my own boundaries. I learn a lot on this forum as members don't mind adding their opinions. This project was one of those A HA moments when I was playing with Segment Pro and this is what evolved.

    One thing I am liking about this pattern is that it shows well from the outside as well as the inside. If I had a choice I would say the inside is better but some designs look great inside but are so so outside. Anyone else notice this?

    Hi Brent, was wondering if your sled is dedicated for a specific segment count, or is it adjustable?

    Glenn, is your sled dedicated for 72 segment or is it adjustable?

    Bob mine is basically set for 72 but it is only a matter of removing some screws to adjust it differently.

    I added the back board a bit ago as the clamps were causing the base to twist a bit.

    Row 20 now on. Didn't think I would get this one on today but that's it until tomorrow.

    That makes 1369 pieces on and 576 to go, or 8 more rows.

    OK, OK, I took the afternoon off. If the sun comes back out I'll go out and do some yard work. Raking is done, now to do the flower beds.

    Despite a dreary day here I managed to flit away my time and only managed to get 1 row on today.

    Row 23 now on.

    It is made of Incra "Build-it" parts and is adjustable for any segment count. I use a digital protractor to set the fence angle when I want to change the segment count.
