Row 25 now on.
1729 pieces on 216 to go.
Forecasting rain tomorrow Maybe some shop time!
Us too, raining on and off today also.
Row 26 is now on. The colour has stopped, the next row is a segmented maple only row and that will be followed with a closed segment walnut row.
1801 pieces now, 144 to go.
Looks Great Glenn. What dia. are we at now?
9.4 to be exact, next row is 9.5 and the top is the same. I am almost there. I will get row 27 on today. Tomorrow I will do some planning and maybe a dry run doing the closed segment top row.
Row 27 is underway. At this point I am getting a bit reckless as I never even checked the order of segments.
And 27 is done!
Row 28 is now complete. To do the closed segment on my Driskell jig I had to adjust my reference plate a little bit to enable the stop to be in the centre of the segments. Very minor issue. From there the segments seemed to flow around for the most part. I did make an adjustment to the SEL at one point as the segments were slightly running off the centre of the adjacent segment.
I will probably wait until tomorrow for the glue to completely dry before I put it back on the lathe for final turning.
What a wonderful piece. I like your tip on using the jib for closed segment ring.
You made that look way too easy!
Remember how hard it was getting started with you closed segment bowl with the thin rows?
That fixture is worth it's weight in gold.
Nice job, looks really good
Thanks Bob. The Jig certainly made everything a lot easier. Hopefully the turning will go just as well.
Slow and easy.........................
and sharp tools.
All great advice.
It will look very sharp when finished.
Thanks Peter. I plan to pick up the Deft product that Bob had suggested if I can find it around here.
Here is what I ended up with for my new table saw sled
