I have been woodturning for around 12 years. I started woodturning to turn table legs for woodworking projects but once I started woodturning I became addicted.
If you think you would like woodturning by all means go for it but be forwarned that once you start woodturning you won't stop. I put a bunch of pictures together to create a slideshow of some of the more common woodturnings that I do. You can see the segmented woodturnings.
