Segmented Woodturning – Mortising the Base
This segmented woodturning video tutorial focuses on mortising the base on the wood lathe. Eventually, this section will be reversed and the mortise being made will provide a dovetail-like opening that the jaws of the lathe chuck will grip. In the woodworking video you will notice how a dial caliper is used for measuring the accuracy of the desired depth of cut for the mortise.
There are three sections of the segmented vase. Ultimately, all 3 sections of the segmented woodturning will be glued together to form a vase that will be 9″ x 12″ when finished. There are 18 rings and 24 segments in each ring. (432 total segments in this segmented woodturning.)
