I have wanted to introduce curves into the patterns of segmented woodturning. Kuldeep Singh offered to send me one of his all metal pantorouters and I thought this would allow me to cut curves into the patterns of segmented turning. I started with a maple bowl I rough turned about a year ago and added a walnut ring to the top. I then used the pantorouter to make 12 holes in the bowl as well as the plugs to fit perfectly in those holes. I tuned to bowl ring and rain drop shaped plugs on the lathe into a finished 14 inch diameter bowl.
