Are you still online? I can't open the tutorial for segmented pro. It brings me to woodturner pro forums but there are no forums.
where are all of the video tutorials?

Hi Bob.
We will have to keep in touch. Right now the shop is open but no guests. Covid protocols are still in place. I have not been in the shop since the shop closed. Still keeping isolated.

About the same here. We arrived on Friday at about 5:00 PM. Have not seen anyone at our woodshop yet. No guests allowed here either
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

(Because we are limited to a certain amount of characters, this reply is in multiple messages.) I understand your apprehension. Having all those different angles flying around instead of a nice even flow of wood like a standard bowl can be scary. If you are doing a vase, you want to do it in small sections if possible. Do the base plus 3 or 4 rows, then the next few rows, repeating until you are done.

Although segmented turnings are very strong, I would also recommend finishing the inside as you complete each section. When you cut each section, start at the edge with a gouge that has a wing as long as the stagger in your segments (this shouldn't be a problem if you are using a regular fingernail grind).

Then with the tool rest inside of the piece, cut down the inside edge taking a bite that is large enough to smooth out the piece and another 1/16th of an inch. Go Slowly. This should smooth out the inside so that you can use any other tool without catching. I hope this helps!
