    It took three tries to get this and it still isn't what I want. You can see this being made at dennyedwards.com the select Movies then Zig Zag. ALL comments welcome.

    Not sure why you wouldn't want that. Looks like it was a lot of work and it turned out great!

    Well Dennis, I'm not a turner, but if I was I would look through your tutorial several times before attempting a project like that.

    It has been really interesting and fun watching your video, thanks for posting it.

    As per the results that you expect, I can understand you very well, in my last flatwork project I made several pieces two and three times before I was happy enough with them.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Nicely done. There is a how to article in the latest edition of Woodturning Design also. I think yours is as pretty as any I have seen. Very nice.

    Not sure what you don't like but that is a beauty. Really well done.

    Lovely bowl there Dennis. Watched the video and boy you sure got the patience.

    If this is not what you want, i am guessing that what you wanted is a double layer of the zig zag that you had to cut out?

    Either way it sure came out neat.
    cheers

    I also went and watched the vid. Thanks for taking the time to make it and posting. I am really intrigued with segmenting bowls, but gotta say, I don't think I have the patients for it. Is there plans some where for making one of those presses.
