Hi Can anyone recommend any good books on segmenting for beginners? I am  an experienced turner of about ten years, but I am just working on my first segmented turning. I have Malcolm Tibbetts book the art of segmenting, good book however it is the university course, I am looking for the highschool text and project book Smiley

Is there an area in particular or style that you want to focus on.

I am currently working on a staved beer mug. I have cut and glued the staves, rounded the out side and started holling the inside to round. I had it mounted for this operation in a flat piece of MDF with a recess cut to fit the outside Dia. and glued with hotmelt and supported with a one-way spindle steady, but the hot melt didn't hold need to reglue with yellow wood glue? My chuck is a Nova SN2 but I have only the factory jaws that will hold up to 2.5 inch tenon, need jaws that will hold 4 inch. I plan to make the base of a flat laminated walnut, tenoned to fit inside.
In short I am looking for books that give small simple segmenting / staved projects with mounting suggestions in order to gain experience. Hoping to add some segmented trim rings to jazz up my projects. I find I learn best by following instructions on a couple projects untill comfortable adding my own twists.

Depending on the diameter I tend to use cole jaws on my SN 2 for holding stave projects.
I try to first hold to wide diameter then turn the narrow to accept a tenon. Glue the tenon piece in then turn it round. Then I reverse the piece and turn the other part.
I don’t mean for it to sound simple but I have just found that cole jaws help me a lot.
