Dennis, these are marvellous, I'm just starting my first attempt. Made a sliding jig to give accurate and constant blocks on my smaller 10inch table saw. Now attempting to glue pieces together into flat rings to create layers. Pva glue slow and difficult to achieve good results, what glue do you use? Do you glue all segments in one go for each layer? Your latest vases seem thicker than mine, is there a minimum wall thickness to safely turn bowl?

hi John
thank you for your coments
i cut my segments on a chop saw and to get accurate joints you have to sand them. i glue them in half rings and then sand the half rings to fit in to full rings then sand them top and bottom. i do actually use PVA glue i try and get the fast acting glue. you can get a 5 min PVA glue that is really good. the glue is shown in the article i put on this site if you look under the article on page 6 it is half way down the page. as for the segments you can do them any thickness you like as long as you can handle them on the sander.

hi Paul and Alan thank you both
Paul the thing is that i do not need to plain and thickness the wood as i have a supplier were that is done already. the finish after going through all the sanding grits from 150 to 600 will be a melamine sand sealer finish and then burnished with wood shavings. this gives a nice shine on it.
Alan i wouldn't say i was that good but getting there.
will post photos of the finished vase in a few days. i got the top part turned and glued up to the bottom so will hopefully finish it tomorrow.

Brilliant Dennis,
Not only do you make segmented vases but you cut segments with a compound angle, fantastic.
 
Bill.

hi Bill
if you are referring to the main feature ring then i cannot take credit for the compound miter they are all just miter joints and glued in to a block and then the angle cut to suit the segment amount . in this case 10 segments so 180 divided by 10 makes a angle of 18 degrees. wish i could get them right it would make some of the job easier for me.
