Just a rookie right now

Hi, my name is Graham and I live in Vancouver, Canada. I have been a woodworker for about 15 years since I retired from my chemengineering career. I am new to wood turning and to segmented turning. I watched some Utube videos on segmented turning and thought "I must try that". I even just bought a new better lathe to make the whole thing more enjoyable. I hope to meet many of you virtually and need to learn a lot before I can even dream about making some of the amazing turnings seen here.

Welcome to WTP and Segmenting.
You can download the software and give it a try for 30 days free.
I would start out simple with the building.
Take a look at the Seg-Easy sled. A number of users like the sled and its easy to make.

Welcome to the Community, Graham! I’m just down the road from you in Portland, Oregon. Once the world returns to normal (assuming it was ever normal at all), I need to make a trip to Vancouver and, hopefully, we can get together for a cup of coffee.

Segmenting can be pretty addicting and the people here are always ready and able to answer questions or make suggestions so please don’t be shy about posting.
