President's Message


Welcome to the website of the Segmented Woodturners, a chapter of the American association of woodturners that is dedicated to the education and sharing of information between its 600 members. Our membership consists of people from beginning segmenters to studio artists. Everyone is welcome to join our open and friendly community.
With the help of some great board members, we have lots in store for the next year
If you like what you see, you can begin your membership and get full access to our 10+ year library of information consisting of a gallery of photos and a forum where members questions are answered, information is shared, and project design details are posted.

I encourage you to read my blog post to learn more about what we have in store for you.

Cribbage anyone?
About 11 years ago I tried to make a Malcolm Tibbetts cribbage board similar to this one. My son liked it and claimed it even though it was a very poor copy of Malcolm’s. I said I would never try it again. But—-what do you do when your grandson says “ can we make one of those boards like Dads”. Well-here it is. 15 1/4” round by 2 “ high. Bloodwood, Chechen, walnut, hard maple, canary, Argentine orange, and Red and Purpleheart, black veneer. This one looks a whole lot better than the first.BY: Gordon Dalby

Meet the Members


To become better acquainted with each other, this column will feature members of Segmented Woodturners.

This month's blogger is James G Allen -I graduated Cum Laude from Governors Academy. The yearbook says I was a brain in math 4. After attending Cornell University I was drafted into the U.S. Army and spent 2 years in Straubing, Germany with the 11th Armored Cavalry as an officers clerk.

Member Spring Challenge



Let’s kick off the New Year with a segmenting challenge to get you in your shop.  We will keep the topic simple so that everyone can participate.  The challenge is “Feature RingsIt’s a great opportunity to try a new one you have been thinking about.  The rules are simple.  Make a piece that contains a feature ring and post it in the gallery by April 30, 2019.  Your description must include the words “Spring Challenge” so we know to include it.  Your feature ring can contain alternate materials or unique techniques so feel free to be creative.  All members that submit a photo will be placed into a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate from Craft Supplies.  Whether you are new to segmenting or a veteran, you have an equal chance to win.  Let’s see how many interesting patterns our 600 members can create.
