Hello everyone. About 6-8 months ago a I bought a wood lathe and fell in love with wood turning. I've always had a passion for wood working but nothing beats turning. Shortly after getting the lathe I learned about segmented turning and stumbled onto this site. After much research about segment pro I purchased it last week and I love it. I'm so amazed at how easy the program is to use. I also bought some of Tom's plans and made my first 1800 piece bowl. I hope to learn from all the talented people here and improve my skills at turning.

Welcome to the WTP Forum.
Thanks for posting some of your work. Looks like you have a lot to offer in advice for beginners.

Lloyd's software is top of the line. imo, it has helped in advancing segment design and turning. I would recommend you also purchase the WTP suite. While it is the older software it gives you more control over your ring and vessel. There are times I design a vessel in SP. Then rebuild it in WTP so I can make some of the changes I want.

Happy turning.
