Featured Ring design
Jun 2nd, 2011 at 5:55pm
 
By looking at photos I generally can figure out how someone made the featured ring in a segmented bowl.  I am ready to expand from the typical geometric patterns.  Curt Theobald made an interesting bowl called “Legend of the White Buffalo”, and George Lucindo made a landscape type featured ring.

My question is how to you think they did it?  My guess is they made patterns on a scroll saw and then routed with a pilot trim bit.  Any of you have ideas or suggestions.
Thanks in advanced.

Yup, scroll saw. I believe the method is described in Ray Allen's book. "Woodturning With Ray Allen" maybe?

There is an old marquetry trick:  The opening is sawn at about a 5 degree angle open to the top.  The inlay is sawn a little oversize at the same angle.  This allows a tight fit and any varience is sanded flat.  In this case, the segment would be sanded or turned on both sides and everyone will think you are the most skilled inlay artist in the world.  Wink

Yep, that works well.

You can also leave the kerf  90° and fill it in with black sawdust.
