Depends on the size and the curvature of the finish piece.

My online segment calculator will give you the dimensions you require


Ron, where do I find your segment calculator?


Found it -- sorry about that.

As others have said you can draw out your design on graph paper.  This helps in deciding segment thickness and width.

I now use a software package by woodturnerpro.com
The more I use it the more I like it.  Also M. Tibbots has a great book out on segmented bowl making.  He makes the math easy.

Malcolm's book is great, it has a plethora of info.  He also has six videos that go from basic to extreme segmenting and beyond.  He has developed his techniques and you can see the same practices throughout all six videos.
