Introduction to Segmented Woodturning, Part I

Our excellent video demo on Segmented Woodturning is now available on our YouTube Channel.  Jim Whattam – who is now part of our Leadership Team – just happens to be an accomplished segmented turner.  So our resident videography expert Scott Wishart recently took a trip down to his workshop in Lewes, Delaware and they put together an amazing video demo packed with information!

The Segmented Woodturning Demo includes:

  • Review of the various forms of segmented woodturning
  • Discussion of why you might want to try segmented woodturning
  • What equipment do you need?
  • How to try segmenting using just tools you already own
  • Segmenting geometry 101
  • A basic segmenting project to try first
  • How to design, cut, glue, clamp, sand, install, and turn a single segmented accent ring on a solid wood bowl

You can view the video here.  Also, a detailed guide that covers everything Jim presents during the demo is available as a free download in PDF format here.
