President's Message

Welcome to the website of the Segmented Woodturners, a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners that was formed in 2009. Our on-line chapter is dedicated to segmenting education and the sharing of information between its 500 members. We are always striving to remain the premier international organization advancing both the art and craft of segmented woodturning for all skill levels from beginner to studio artist and we have a good mix of experience levels. Our mission is to provide a 1st class website, a forum for asking questions and sharing information, and a gallery of members artwork with an archive of 1000’s of pieces and growing to inspire you. You can learn more about what the chapter has to offer by visiting the “About” page at the top of the screen. I hope you will take advantage of our free 3 day trial so you can see our content. If you like what you see, please join our community. Everyone is welcome.

Photo of the Week

The Sacred Circle

By Rich Charlson
The piece was sold at the Charles M Russell art auction last spring. It’s a 14.5 x 2 inch platter the woods are zebra wood black walnut maple blood wood yellow heart wedge in the star lace wood and maple around the circle
Russ said "Outstanding piece Rich! That star “center piece” is a great glue up with excellent alignment of points on the multigenerational lamination. Then add the micro basket illusion work and it just pops! The lacewood segments work well to join two pretty intense sections of the platter. Your Basket Illusion coloring is pure eye candy. Well done Rich!"

Brian Witt
Fredericksburg, VA

My name is Brian Witt and I'm a retired chemical engineer and research manager but I currently have four part time jobs which severely limits how much time I get to spend in my shop. The picture shows me in my role as a docent at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. When I was in my mid 20’s my younger brothers were award-winning woodworkers in high school, and they inspired me to do some woodworking and specifically to try something on the lathe. I really enjoyed it and I've now been turning for about 45 years...
