I love all kind of wood work but I am in love with woodturning, in particular segmented turning. I turn wood since I arrived to Australia in 1974 and never stop. I live in Sydney and a member of Macarthur Woodturners for more than 15 years. I have a considered number of projects many of them are my own design or inspired by other wood turners with additional own ideas. I love all of them like any father loves his children without preferment. I, soon, will let you ( meet ) or see them one by one, hoping you will do the same by showing yours. We are here to help ourselves steeling ideas from each others, I think. Nice to meet you all.

THE COMPASSES I NEED

When you build an open segmented project, you will need to locate the center point for each level in order to mark the circumference of the next level. A pair of normal compasses does not work because the center is in the air. I...
