firstly rough turn the base

then you can cut the ring segments (12 per ring)to size gradualy incresing in size as the rings get bigger. lay the segments out.

then glue up the rilgs using the jig hear is the first 2 rings glued ( as you can see the vase is turned so as the gapsare in the middle of the segment.)

continue gluing the rings to the vase clamping them using a length of wood and two clamps

continue as you go till you have the 5 rings that you require for the vase

now start turning the vase to a rough turn on the out side and to a finished shape on the in side.

now start cuting the bits for the neck of the vase

using the inlayes of your choise glue up the ring so you have 2 halve rings. then sans the half rings so they fit together without a gap.

after gluing up and sanding the mase of the ring flat glue this to the vase and then turn the in side to match the in side of the vase. now turn the out side to a finish. finish the vase with what ever you deside on but do not forget the gaps.

hi Alan
     i have been using wilkinsons pva glue as it seems to go of quickly but of late i have started using acrilick glue( as in gorila glue it has 30 min set time) it is easyer to cleen up when dry. the only thing is if you get the glue on your gingers (as you do ) it is hard to cleen of.

Thanks for that Dennis, I thought it might have to be a bit special to stand the forces applied to the many jonts when spinning in the lathe. I've never used PU glue but have seen Norm use it on TV. Will have to get some.    Cheers    Alan   T

I used some Gorilla glue, put gloves on to keep my fingers clean. OK? well not really, being impatient I touched the foam to see if it was set.. It wasnt, got it off OK though, i used hand cream, loads of it, it seems to soften the skin and release the glue. I have done this with other substances in the past, including one tricky mishap with super glue.......

Hello Ron,
                     I use quite a lot of superglue one way or another. Some time ago I filled a crack in a turning blank with it rubbed in some wood dust and left it while I went for a cuppa. On returning I checked it had set ok and started to reduce it with the roughing gougeonly to find myself covered in the stuff as only the surface had set properly. Fortunately I did not get any in my eyes as I had specs on. But it was a salutory lesson to be more aware of what could go wrong.    Alan   T.

hi Ron
     thank you for that i will remember that , it may be the same with bayby oil as i have used that when i have got paint on my hands and this works as long as the paint is not fully dry.

Hello Dennis,
                         As promised I gave the segmented bowl a try. got it all glued up ok and the outside turned to a reasonable finish. Youv'e guessed it a catch. this is the result.  Hey Ho.
 That isn't what 'er indoors heard.    Cheers   Alan  T.
