Claude Dupuis
Segmented Basics

Claude will start out with a short show and tell using a combination of physical pieces and pictures of past projects. He will then discuss designs from conception to full scale detailed drawings. Also covered will be the math fundamentals for getting started and some of the terminology used in segmented construction. Claude will briefly discuss wood selection and grain orientation. He will outline the basic tools needed with examples of what works for him. He will cut a ring of segments, sand them to precise size using specialized jigs, and then fit a ring of segments ready for glue-up. He will glue up a segmented ring, true it on the lathe and glue it to the bowl construction.
