Segmented turning--turning an object from a glued-up blank--allows turners to design and create patterns and visual effects in turned pieces. In addition to design skills, segmented turning demands precise woodworking and turning skills.
In Segmented Turning, professional turner Dennis Keeling shows step-by-step all the basic techniques for closed segmented, open segmented, and ornamental segmented turning. He focuses on the fundamentals of accuracy in the three types of construction, as well as the equipment, tools, and materials used for those forms.
Keeling also showcases the work of seven other segmented turners, discusses changing technology, and health and safety concerns of working with wood in this way. Following the comprehensive technique instruction are 10 projects that progress in difficulty, from beginner to advanced. At the end of the book, a gallery of inspirational segmented designs provides inspiration.
