Turning Archive 2004
>Ok, so segmented turning is a bunch of little pieces of wood glued together to make a larger piece of wood that you put on the lathe and make something smaller.
My silly question for the day...what process do most of you use to create/touch up the surfaces of the rings for glueing.
I have been gluing the rings up and then truing one side on a square of sandpaper by hand. That is a lot of work and it really makes the bursitis in my shoulders act up.
My thought...does it make things easier if you run your stock through a thickness planer first and then cut it into segments?
I really want to do more segmented turning but the pain at this point is not worth the gain.
Any and all comments welcome.
