I see you got your "Kirks" system figured out.  Thumbs Up
I never did find the plans for the jig I offered to show, way back when. Looks like you didn't need it after all.

I like the piece, now my critique.
The base looks a little left out or forgotten. All the interest is at the feature ring and the collar (neck).
The ring/s directly above the base could get the same or a slightly subdued version of the treatment at the collar. Sometimes, this can help to balance out the look of a piece.
That's JMO, it's art after all

Thanks Ed. I know about the naked base. I ended up building the jig for the router. It was a little scary on the first cut. I found that using a longer piece and raising the cutter a bit at a time worked quite well. The only thing is my bit will only cut 1"

if I remember correctly, from the jig I saw.
The segments were drilled and "rough" cut with your saw of choice. Then a jig with a pivot pin was used. The jig was placed on a disc sander and the segment was rotated throughout the curve (there are stops at each end)
Hope that makes sense, a little less scary than using a router

Forgot to add, the inner curve is simply the outer diameter of a forstener bit

Well I'm glad I'm not losing my memory  Roll Eyes

As your piece shows, template routing can be very precise.

See if you can get Ed to show some pictures of his work. He does some nice stuff. Not to say that the vase in this thread is not good, I think it is excellent also.

Segmented woodturning is a good way to pass time during a pandemic.  Very nice piece Allan.
