Looks Ok to me AJ.

I made something similar for my first one, out of Silver Ash and Blackbean. I used MitreFix for glue then, but use CA these days. What glue did you use?

Cheers

Yep, good one. Was this your own design or from a plan.
If it was from a plan. Is the plan available.

21007I'm new to the board. I just saw your first segmented bowl. You folks have a better selection of hardwoods. The attachment was a second segmented turning using stave construction (maple, padauk, yellowheart, ebony) and wood glue finished with acrylic.

G'day Lance, nice turning!

How did you calculate the mitre-angle on the staves? 'Tis easy to calculate for normal segmented turnings (where all joints in a ring are parallel to one axis) but for tapered joints... :(

Don't s'pose you're using nomograms you'd be willing to share?

Very nice work! I was at the book store just last night reading about staved turning, all the angles...whew! I would like to try it sometime. Again nice work.

I'll admit to using a trigonometry formula and my son's calculator. But, it was really tiring followed by lengthy sessions of adult beverages. I now use a program called woodturnerpro. Does the calculations, and draws the corresponding rings, staves, veneers etc. Here's the website: http://www.woodturnerpro.com (http://www.woodturnerpro.com/). This guy cuts his parts on TS and a sled. I do mine on a chop saw. I try to have the grain chasing around the circumference. It's a big help. Lloyd Johnson is the developer and fellow turner. He has helped me on several occasions.

If you have seen the rolling pin with elliptical laminations posted, I'm making the same as a vase using veneers: padauk, yellowhear, purple heart, bubinga, and poplar as the base stock.
