First Segmented Turning
So, I have been working on this for a couple of weeks, and I finished it this Monday. It is a little toothpick holder I made from Cherry and Walnut, it is approx 2 1/2" tall by 2 1/4 wide. The technique used is called segmented turning, which is where many small pieces of wood are cut at precise angles, glued together to form rings, and then the rings are glued together. When all glued up it is put on the late and turned to the desired shape. I had fun making this, but it takes quite a while to get everything all glued up and set right.
