I use both traditional woodturning techniques to make solid wood bowls and segmented woodturning techniques.
When I started learning to turn on the lathe, I found that while I enjoyed the process, the outcome was limited by the pieces of available wood for shape, size and colors. When I discovered segmented woodturning, the doors of possibility opened wide. I combine various woods, especially figured and often locally sourced woods, into shapes and combinations that offer endless possibility.
