This turned (pardon the pun) out very well.
"This lamp is made of oak base, walnut and beach segments and a walnut top. there are 218 bits and is 7"x8" in size".
Great use of woods and I also love the design.
Brilliant work mate, well done

well done Dennis, another great job. You must have the patience of Joab because I know just how much time is put into segmented work.
I have never done the open segmented work mainly because of having to clean it all up afterwards!

thank you for the comments and yes it dos take a lot of time to do but mainly waiting about as the glue is drying. the glue is only a pva glue but gose of in 5 mins it grips as soon as you put the parts together and you are able to do the next ring in just over 15 mins. Ian the clean up is none as the left over glue is transparent.this lamp took aproxametly 12 hours in total.this time could be doubled if i had to cut and plain the strips. i am lucky as were i get the wood from they make doors and have leftovers from the door lipings and that is what i am using.

Another great piece of segmented work Dennis.
At least with this type of work you are not trying to look for a piece of wood that is the right dimensions for the project. Also adds too the end result with all the different woods

hi Mark / Derek
thank you for your comments .the only thing you need to do Derek is make shure that the two woods you are using in the same ring are the same thickness.the width of the wood has a part to play but not as critical as the thickness
