12/12/2017 - Late breaking news!!
Life is almost returning to normal and the address you now see will be official on 12/20. The not quite back to normal part is that all my book copies went up in smoke and won't be replaced. BUT I still have it in PDF form. I will have DVDs again within a week.
Design your first segmented project in 5 minutes with the Segmented Project Planner
Below are links to some of the
plans for my segmented projects that you can view, print, and use as
you like. All of these sample plans were created using my Segmented Project Planner.
It has been a tremendous help in making my projects go faster and
smoother. Although these plans are based on the inch as the unit of
length, you can convert them to use millimeters using the Segmented Project Planner.
Table Saw Sled Plan. With this plan you can make yourself a truly
accurate miter sled so you can cut first class segments for your rings
that you don't have to send time touching up to get a perfect ring. A
notable feature of this sled is that adding a new miter angle to your
repertoire is quick and cheap!
|Colorado Anniversary. This plan,
provided by Mark Lisowski, produces a good looking open
This plan can be used to constuct a simple cup that uses a Segment
Design/Mosaic to form a dramatic ring around the cup. Of course, it's
not that simple when you consider the total number of pieces involved.
The total is 384 pieces if the ring is built from all of its individual
parts. It's only 204 pieces if you take advantage of the design to use
|Globe Bowl. This plan was the test
piece for the AutoBowl function. It's mated with a 12" white globe to
make a lamp which you can see in the Gallery
section. You can follow along with me as I constructed this piece in
the What's Up
hemisphere bowl. This item, makes a good looking salad bowl set.||
|10" hemisphere bowl. This, mixing
bowl sized, item works well by itself or together with a set of smaller 6" bowls.||.
mixing bowl. This bowl has simple straight sides angled out
at about 45 degrees.||
|11" inverted hemisphere. This is a
display or serving piece that is the foundation for the swirl bowl in
my Gallery section.||
Curves Bowl. Here is another display piece that's fun to
watch as it develops.
|Complex Curves Bowl-2. When I
constructed "Complex Curves" for the What's
Up section, I played fast and loose with some of the details
of the plan and got an unexpected result. This plan is what I actually
This jar, you can see it constructed in the What's Up section, was
my first plan made entirely with the Segmented Project Planner.||
Bowl. I didn't know what a hyperbolic bowl was, so I asked
the author, David Kassover, to send it to me. Interesting!
|Simple Cup. I thought the Inlaid Cup
was a little bit much as my first project using Segment Designs, so I
simplified it, constructed it, and you can see the result in the Gallery section.
Here's a playful piece borrowed from the old West.||
