Workshop and Techniques

What is a segmented bowl or segmented lathe?

It is a technique in which many pieces of wood are stuck together to create an object that will later be turned. The process involves the creation of visual effects and patterns with the combination of woods.

Contrary to how it is done in traditional turnery, in which the limitations are given by the size of a single piece, the segmented lathe goes further; and through the problems you can create very striking objects developing knowledge, skill and imagination.
