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.

Here are several segmented projects you can take a look at to get an idea of my construction methods. For each project, I provide a step-by-step picture essay showing what it takes to get the job done.


  • Complex Curves - My last 'hand designed' project
  • Cookie Jar - A simple jar of Maple with Walnut used to decorate it; the first SPP project
  • Evil Eye - Making diamonds using lamination techniques
  • Globe Lamp - A segmented sphere brings new life for a 70's vintage "Touch Lamp"
  • Relocating the Project Center - You've forgotten to mark the center of your project before mounting on the chuck. Here's how to get it back!
  • Running Snake - A common Navajo border pattern implemented as a mosaic
  • Sequences - An 'art deco' venture into sequences of numbers using a 'tilted table' on the bandsaw
  • Slow Turning Attachment - No runs or sags and no flying varnish with this lathe attachment
  • Waves - An experiment in 'tilted table' work on the scroll saw
