    I’ve been woodworking, building furniture and boxes with marquetry since the mid seventies. During that time, I took a pen and bowl making class at Woodcraft. Always enjoyed the quick completion of turning a bowl or pen. A couple years ago, I started working with epoxy resin joined with burls to create some fun and different bowls. At some point, I saw segmented bowls on YouTube and it really looked like something I would like. I’ve made some of the jigs and simple bowls but wanted to do more. I purchased Segmented Pro, made my 1st SW feature ring vase and just finished a tornado vase. Now I’m hooked. Looking forward to learning more and more.

    Welcome to WTP forums. Sound like you have the bug. Take advantage of the gallery and share some of your work.

    I also have done some marquetry. Learned it from a member of our Woodclub. He taught the method of cutting all the pieces with a scalpel. Here is a link to his website.

    I’ve seen Ernie’s work before. He does some beautiful work. This box is a Koa veneer box with marquetry picture given to my daughter in law.
