  • New Segmented Feature Ring Started

    I have Started a New Segmented Project.........Working on the Feature Ring First.

    I will see how this Turns out then Design the Rest of the Vessel / Bowl.

    There will be Twenty (20) Individual Pieces of Wood Per Panel.

    That is going to be very beautiful! I love the shapes and the colors, they go so well together...

    What are the woods?

      Extremely cool. I would be very interested to see and or hear how you got to this point.

          Looks like another great beginning Russel. Is there lots of curl in the maple, or only the bit that the photo shows?

          So once they are glued up, will you cut the block in half to make 12 of them to build the ring, or are you thinking of adding in 6 different style blocks between these and have enough of these left over for another piece?

            Lloyd......I have a Total of Seven (7) Blocks. If I am careful I can cut Four (4) from each one so I will only Need Three (3) to make a Ring........what to do with the Remaining Blocks......I have all kinds of Crazy Ideas floating around upstairs. There is a Fair amount of Curl in the Maple. Wood used........Curly Maple, Ebony, Holly, Purple Heart, Blood Wood Plus a few I cannot Remember what they are!!!

              Hi Russell
              Looking forward to the progression. You certainly don't take on simple projects.

                      I am not sure I really like the alternating pattern. I guess it will get better once you expand the vessel to include the next parts.

                        Lloyd......I was in Two Minds as what to do here. If I were going to Build a Hollow Form around it as I have done in the Past I agree with you regarding the Alternating Pattern but I have other Plans for the Ring which I think Lends itself to the Alternating Pattern........Stay Tuned.Russell
