Listener Questions, Email, and Comments
Chris – Hello Boys, first of all, great podcast! I really appreciate the well balanced backgrounds of the group and Kyle’s experience with turning which compliments the woodworking background of the group which sets this podcast apart from the rest.
My question for you- I’ve been turning for 2 years and have turned 2 segmented small bowls. I enjoy the visual appeal of contrasting woods as much as the next person which is where I think the “sexy” allure comes from. The question is this- in order to achieve that contrasting appearance between segments giving the brick and mortar appearance, what is the extent of material options to set off different segments? For example, am I limited in trying to rip 1/32″ slices of contrasting wood to get that effect between rings or individual segments or can I use something else? I’ve thought about black construction paper, card stock, even felt glued between layers of wood with CA glue to instill some structural rigidity. Also, if something other than wood can be used, does that influence a movement away from yellow glue to something else like CA glue? I’m not looking to reinvent the wheel so suggestions are welcomed. There’s something about thin black lines outlining segments that I hope to practice.
Thanks for a great show and all the wisdom masked in entertainment! Keep up the great work!
