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.

Photo of The Week


Zirocote Vase This 16.5"x 8" vase (817 segments) shows an inverse of wood used in a prior vase submitted to WOW. That vase had a Zirocote/Bubinga feature ring and BLM burl top and bottom with walnut veneers. I liked the wood colors a lot so on this vase I used a BLM burl/Bubinga feature ring, with the balance Zirocote and Maple veneers for enhanced brickwork. Thanks to fellow woodturner Bob Meese for providing the Zirocote cut-offs from making his 3rd Sam Maloof rocking chair for his adult children.BY: Dennis Richardson

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.
