This is the smallest piece I have made in my Nova 3000 lathe. This vessel is 40 mm high and 24 mm in diameter, all segments are 2 mm thick and there is 240 of them. The woods is Norwegian Birch and African Padauk. The wall thickness is 2.5 mm.
This is a weekend project

Im using a little artist spatula to put on the glue, a very thin strip on each side of the segment and a tweezer to put them on place.:D

Oeistein, I'm impressed. Thought your Norwegians turns only very big bowls, but I'm wrong. This has cost you a lot of patience and time to make all these tiny segments.
Anyway the endresult is gorgeous,
Great job. :2tsup:

W-O-W! On screen blowup is about double actual size. Just the assembly would be a weekend adventure, and probably not concentric to boot.

Well done.:2tsup:
