Sorry. I live in Arizona. I would suggest seeking out any local woodturning clubs for hands on. If it is questions on software or construction tips there are many here that can help you.

Hi Habib, welcome o the forum. You have any questions I'm sure there will be someone here to answer it
Hi, thanks. I try to turn inside a segmented vise, but no matter what I do it catches so bad that it scares the hell out of me. I have those carbide tips and fingernail gouge. the thickness of pieces are 3/8" and it is not possible to ride the bevel of the fingernail gouge.

Try using your carbide in a negative rack position. Turn the tip of the tool down. It will become almost impossible to get a catch. the tip of your tool will be below the top of your tool rest. I hope I explain this good enough. If not let me know and I'll make a sketch

Remember you put a lot of work in design, cutting your pieces and gluing them up. Take little cuts it's not a race to get it turned.
