Segmented Woodturning – Organizing the segments and rings

Segmented Woodturning – Organizing

Organizing the segments and the rings - Segmented woodturning

In segmented woodturning is important to keep the segments for each ring organized. Each ring varies in size and each ring has in this instance 12 segments plus 12 (3/16″)  spacers. There are a total of 360 pieces placed on the workbench that will comprise the vase for this segmented woodturning. Creating and preparing a segmented piece to turn on a wood lathe is very much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. However, it can be simplified by taking the time to separate and then organize the segments. Organization helps the work flow because you know where everything is when it is time for gluing the segments into rings. As a result, you can feel comfortable and thereby develop a rhythm with your work.

Organizing segmented rings

The above photo shows the organization of segmented wood rings on the woodworking bench.  During the gluing and clamping  large hose clamps were fastened around the perimeters of the segmented  rings. The clamps were then fastened securely with the aid of a cordless impact driver and its mounted nut driver. After they are sent through the open drum sander each wood ring is then numbered to ensure their correct placement for assembly. Also notice the plans on the workbench that include the illustrations for the completed segmented woodturning.
