Segmented Woodturning video of the 9″ x 12″ Vase

Segmented Woodturning – 9″ x 12″ Vase

Segmented woodturning has taken its hold once again. In this woodturning video we are back at the wood lathe with our turning tools working on a new woodworking project, a segmented vase comprised of 18 rings and 432 segments. You’ll see the segmented woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this decorative vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut.

When the actual segmented woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate the sanding process and prepare for finishing the vase. Initially, Sealcoat shellac sealer is used on the vase (inside and out). Once the sanding sealer has dried it is then time for a light sanding with 400 grit sandpaper. Next the dust is removed and we are ready for an application of Arm-R-Seal satin finish. Numerous applications of the wipe on satin finish are applied to the  vase once it is completely prepared.

(Note: all segmented wood has been glued with the same grain direction to allow for wood movement.)

Segmented Woodturning – Mortising the Base

Segmented woodturning:

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.

Segmented Woodturning - 3 sections of a wooden vaseThere 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.)

Segmented Woodturning – Applying the Wood Finish

Segmented woodturning - wood finish appliedThe segmented woodturning, a vase of walnut and maple is mounted to the lathe chuck of the wood lathe. In this case the vase already has a preliminary coat of Sealcoat sanding sealer. It also has a coat of Arm-R-Seal gloss finish. The next step calls for a light sanding with 600 grit wet and dry sandpaper. Then all the dust will be removed with a microfiber cloth so that an application of Arm-R-Seal satin finish can be wiped on and evenly distributed while the wood lathe is turning at a low speed. Allow the wood finish to dry in a dust free area. Repeat this process until you are satisfied with the wood finish. Also, make sure to dispose of any potentially flammable rags  in an appropriate manner.

Note:

Segmented woodturning - vase with wood finishDuring this finishing operation of the segmented woodturning, it is imperative to be safe and keep the wiping cloth away from the lathe chuck. Otherwise, the cloth could be grabbed by the spinning lathe chuck. For the same reason, it is also very important to use caution when applying the finish near the mouth opening of the vase. To avoid any chance of spontaneous combustion in the woodworking shop, remember to safely dispose of any and all rags containing flammable substances.
