• 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
Big blue, Little blue

Big blue, Little blue

I wanted to make a BIG project. I had a large piece of ash on hand. The large vase is 24 1/2 inches tall, 33 - 12 segment rings plus the solid base. The small vase is 12 inches tall, 15-12 segment rings plus a solid base.I built the large one in two sections on my Maxi General lathe. I could not complete it on this lathe as it is only able to handle 16 inches without an extension. I had to assemble and finish it on my old Beaver 3400. It handled the length fine but it ran very close to the bed of the lathe. I could not slide the banjo under the large mid section. The blue is Transtint Blue. The dye did not absorb very well in the grain on the small vase. On the large one I applied a walnut stain and then sanded back before applying the dye.
Beautiful vessels, Glenn. The profile is simply great and the color/grain selection really makes a statement.
Nicely done.

It looks like what someone else here makes and I like them to.
