Segmented Wood Turning
The intricate patterns in these vessels are created by gluing thousands of separate segments accurately into position, a layer at a time, then refining the shape on the lathe. We only utilize the natural colors of the woods. Precision is crucial in every aspect of the construction process. Each piece needs to be milled to exacting dimensions.
spacerThe pieces are finished with up to 12 coats of hand-rubbed tung oil. This provides a durable lifetime finish that should only be cleaned with a soft, dry cotton cloth.
spacerWe have the capacity to turn a platter up to 38” in diameter. Platter styles come with a stand for mounting on the wall and a stand with legs to exhibit upright. They also display well laying flat in the center of a table. Only the two of us are involved in the process of fabricating these vessels.
