Hi segmented wood turners, This is my first segmented vase and I need some help on inside bowl turning. I read few of the comments on turning inside of the bowl. I used carbide type tool and fingernail gouge. The way it caches scares the hell out of me. No flying vase since I am not using jaw. I am grateful of any help, thanks-Habib
I am a member of the Mandurah Group and a member of the Segmenters Mob, which is a sub group made up of members from all of the groups in Western Australia under the overarching agency called the West Australian Woodturners Association (WAWA). We have regular demonstrations on all the softwares available but are really getting stuck into Segment Pro, helping all those who are new to our craft.
Just updated Lamination pro and Woodturner pro also Installed segment pro. I have got to say I’m pretty excited to get going on designing new segmented projects. Being on lockdown for COVID 19 I have a lot of time to learn these softwares. I don’t think I will get bored.
I don't know why anyone would want to try to duplicate the overly-complicated accu-wedge bandsaw jig.
Just make a two-fence sled that is similar to what Jerry Bennett shows on his segmentology videos. The zero-clearance fence" that attaches to the table saw insert will have to be integral with the band saw sled version. You will need to make or buy some angle plates to set your fence angle precisely.
I do not get around much my wife does the driving since the bombing due to meds and brain damage. I was going to ask Ed if he would donate some pen kits and other turning stuff like S&P shakers and key chains but forgot. When I have any funds left over I buy what I can since I supply them with everything.
I noticed the title under my avatar still says 'New Member' eveb though I joined in early 2018. I was curious about what I have to do to qualify for an upgraded title. 'Green Apprentice", perhaps. It's not a big thing but I was curious.
Arlin this was a solid Oak bowl that I turned and it warped very badly so I then cut it up into segments and produced this bowl so I dont really know the angle of the stays. Hope this is of some help to you
I could use any and all help and advise on making a board vase. My email is Papaaeastman@gmail.com. Pictures and good explanation really helps me and the vets a lot. Besides the broken body I also have brain damage from the bombing in the middle east so it takes awhile for things to sink in and like I said pictures or play by play or even video are a great help.
Things are still shut down in SCW. The Rec Center is staring to ask clubs how they would reopen if given permission to do so. The Rec Center has said that the reopening would start with the outside activities. We have avoided the virus so far. Feb. sound good to meet.
Hi Mike, any better down there? We are back home in Wisconsin and through our quarantine period. I hope all is well down there. We'll have to hook up in Feb. when we come back down. If we are all alive!!
