• 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

Open segment bowl started - Petal

Thanks all, it looks even better once I put some lemon oil polish on it
Really nice! I just finished my open segmented turning, pretty plain looking but i wanted to get the process down before an attempt to do something as beautiful as your turning, I used Titebond "Quick and Thick". It worked great and dries clear. However I will be using pipe cleaners and dental picks for more ambitious turnings. I lost a couple segments using a board for sanding rings flat. I bet rounding over the edges lightly will help with that. I also used the Hunter#2 Osprey tool to shear scrape. High speed and a light touch worked well. Do you always finish with lemon oil finish? Where can I buy that and do you have any tips on application? Thanks and congratulations on a stunning work of art!

As far as sanding goes I basically use a wooden stick ( 1.5 - 2 inches wide) that will span the width of the bowel. The sides of the stick are rounded as to not catch the segments. As of late, I am experimenting with walnut oil, I like the flat satin finish, it's easy to get between segments and penetrates the wood.
