Hi Lloyd,

I would like to create a Survivor Ribbon Vase on either an open-segmented or closed segmented vase/bowl. Maybe one of each to see how it looks. My wife volunteers for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure and I think this would make a great present for suvivors. I need a little help,( ok a lot of help) with the design. I would like the vase or bowl to be about 8 to 10 inches high. I have seen one on Capt Eddie's site at "Big Guy Productions" which looks very interesting. I'm not real great with using Woodturnerpro software and just maybe this project may be a little over my head but I have to start some where and why not with a project that has a lot of meaning to so many people. So if any one has some ideas they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all in advance, Augie

Augie,

A member posed a similar question some time back and I had a suggestion of something that could be done, but I have not yet tried it. You can see my suggestions and a couple screen shots at the end of this thread:

I've looked at doing something like this with an open segment pattern, but unless you get upward of 40-50 segments per row, it's hard to make a pattern that would look like the cancer ribbon.
