Covering a technique popularised by master woodturner, Ray Allen, this manual moves beyond basic woodturning with the segmented woodturning technique. This creative approach is demonstrated in one complete step-by-step project that effectively guides woodturners through the complicated process of creating geometric, repeating patterns with a South-western feel. Detailed, illustrated instructions make this seemingly elaborate technique approachable. Additional information on common problems helps avoid mistakes along the way. A full-colour photograph gallery provides inspiration for future projects.
