old vs new *PIC*

John Lucas
>I challenged my fellow turners to show an old piece vs one of thier new pieces. I'll start. The segmented vessel was one of my early turnings. I don't have a photo of my really early pieces. This was about 10 years ago. My woodworking skills were good so the joints are tight but the shape had a long way to do. Because the bowl had relatively straight sides and flat bottom I always had a really tough time turning and finishing the transition between sides and bottom.
Obviously my segmented work has taken a different turn. The pregnant goblet had inside-out turning- miniature turning-offcenter turning- steam bending and turning acrylic.
