by Malcolm Tibbetts.
Segmented woodturning offers a boundless field for the creative turner. There are few limitations, and the possibilities are endless. The challenge comes in the precision and inventiveness required to product pieces of artistic merit. It has been said that in working with wood, there are only four factors to be considered: measuring, marking, cutting, and joining. Segmented woodturning brings these four into sharp focus as no other form of woodworking.
The author offers a step-by-step guide that gives the turner all the tricks of the trade: what woods to use, how to prepare the wood, two methods of cutting segments, ingenious methods for gluing and clamping, flattening surfaces for assembly, installing round designs, sphere-turning techniques, and many other techniques, as well as ideas for creative expression.
