Segmented turnings are stunningly intricate, and easier to produce than they appear to be.
The author uses several of his own creations to explain every step of the process, geared towards woodworkers at an intermediate skill level. Wood properties, sanding techniques, design considerations, laminated accents, and myriad other tricks are covered. The pieces range from a simple bowl to a vase with porthole features to interlocking rings. Illustrated with hundreds of color photographs, which also provide inspiration.
