Mixed segment row

Hello all,

I've been using and teaching others to use WoodturnerPro for quite some time now and have come across a question that I cannot answer.

Please see attached. Referring to row 9, looking to have the ring consist of 12 Walnut segments not 6 and only 6 (3/4") Alder 'spacers'. The layout would be WWAWWAWWAWWA.

I've tried as a Wheel as well as Flat with vertical spacers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi mcjayjay
I have attached a rework of your wtp file Fall 2020-13. I did away with the wheel type rings. All are flat. The center of the SW pattern is a 6 segment ring with .75" alder spacers. All other rings are 12 segments.

Is that the pattern that you were looking for?

(ps, I live in Sun City West).

Thanks for a quick reply. What was row 9 is now row 8 but still has 6 segments. I was trying to do it with 12 segments & 6 'spacers'.

Perhaps what I'm trying to do is not possible with WTP.

It may not be possible with WTP or SP. WTP aligns rings through the brick type pattern. That is why I thought you were more interested in the featured ring pattern than sticking to the set segments numbers.

I made a guess the pattern was more important than the number of segments.
Another approach would be to glue a laminate board, cut to thickness and then miter the ends after marking from center segment edge length.

Don't have a vid tour, but the SWC woodshop website is Sun City West Woodshop – Woodworking for life (scwwoodshop.com)
