segmenting sled?

>I am building a sled for my table saw so I can attempt some segmented turning. I am not following anyones design, which may be a mistake.
How wide are your segments usually? If I leave space for 2" wide is that enough?
What angle range do I need? Seems like 45degrees is maximum.
How long a segment might I need to cut? Seems like 3 or 4 inches is about max.
Anything else I should watch out for?
Thanks
