View Full Version : Segmenting Cutoffs, left overs, and mistakes
04-28-2010, 4:26 PM
This started out to be a Zig Zag feature ring for a bowl, but couldn't get my alignment right. I took it apart and re-cut the segments to make this Ornamental Bird House. The top was from another project that went bad. I don't know why I indented the bottom, just seemed like the thing to do at the time.
This is one way I use those cutoffs, left overs, and mistakes. I have another project working where I am making a large bowl out of (so far) "23" different kinds of wood. Going to be a bizarre looking thing.
What Ya think??

Just looking at that, the word 'mistake' would never come to mind. Very nice bird house!

Bill apparently does not have "scraps", just smaller and smaller segments! :eek:

Bill, I just realized that the half a truck load of walnut, maple and oak scraps that I threw on my woodpile last year, were in fact, several dozen segmented pieces in disguise!!
Perhaps the name for this one is "One flew over the cuckoo's nest!":D

It looks good to me. Nice wood combination.

Segmenters don't have scraps - just opportunities.

I can see there is no waste in your shop except for shavings and sawdust!

Pretty cool variation on a birdhouse ornament! Nice and imaginative way to use up some of your smaller segments!
Looking forward to seeing the 23 types of wood creation!

Really nice birdhouse Bill. Looks to me like the rest said a design opportunity.

Well it made a really neat birdhouse!
