Very nice Dennis
 
I would think its a lot harder for the joint segmented than the open due to the large gaps.....you can loose a few mm and it wont matter too much.
 
Great job done here though. well done

Good work Dennis.  The segments seem to fit really well and the contrasting woods go well together.  I think though that I would like a softer curve at the wide point.

hi Marc and Oddjob
        thank you for your comments. this is my first time at closed segment work the flow of the curve is a little harsh but i was a little hasty in finishing it and could of dune better. this is a lurning curve and i intend doing a larger vase and take more time overe it.

Dennis a nicely turned out piece as said before with the open segment it is a little bit forgiving.
 
You have still done a great job as this is a first attempt at closed segment turning

You are doing well there, Like Derek says the open segments are a little more forgiving but it all comes with practice
