• Having problems with video with Segment PRO on a new PC? You could be experiencing one (or both) of two problems. First, if you have an ultra high-resolution screen, the recommended settings might be higher than 1920 x 1080 with a scale factor of more than 100% and the user interfaces for all software written in c# will NOT be correct. Simply change the resolution and scaling to 1920 x 1080 and scale to 100%. Second, if you have a wonky Bowl View, you have an Intel Iris graphics solution and there are serious problems with it. Solution - go to the Drivers page at Intel's website and install their latest driver for your computer. This will fix it. Link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download-center/home.html

Another non-segmented turning I just finished.

Spalted Maple vase and lid with Ebony finial/knob sitting on a cherry burl base. The base is a bowl I turned that didn't turn out like I wanted. When I finished the vase I happened to look at the bowl and thought...hmm, if I turn it upside down it might make a decent base. I'm not sure I'm sold on that idea though.

10" tall without the knob 4.5" or so in diameter.

I gotta get back to segmenting!!!

Very nice. It never ceases to amaze me what wonders nature provides that is just waiting for a turner to reveal.

Thanks! I turn a lot of burls and always enjoy uncovering the beauty of nature. This is a burl I thought was going to be trash and it turned out to be one of my favorites!

Thanks Gateway. I've had mixed comments about the base. Some like it others think it takes away from the elegance of the form. I like it either way.

I did not see the bowl Frank and it looks great!!!

Do you think the one you gave me is ready to turn??

Thanks Arlin. That burl I sent you should be ready to turn by now. I think it was sealed pretty good so you might want to scrape that off if you haven't already done it. Post a picture when you're finished!

Great work Arlin! I always hope that the prettiest chunks of wood make their way to someone with the skills to make something stunning from them.You certainly did that!

Thanks for posting.
