    Beginning to Learn to turn segments

    Just did my first segmented turning and have a couple more t do. They are fun. when I was building up the rings I found it helpful to build half rings then attach both pieces to the table saw sled and split them to get a clean joint. Much easier than trying to get perfect angles off the miter saw.

    best type of flush trim router bit for burl veneer as well as plain cut veneer?

    Burl veneer? Sounds like a job for a knife, file and sandpaper. Even with a spiral bit, I think you would risk tear out.

    Anybody doing any strip built boats?

    My dad has built a couple strip canoes and a S&G kayak out in MO. I am much more into whitewater than flat water, but have been interested in tackling one of the Guillemots. I'd love to see the boat and discuss some of the challenges sometime.

    My Job is being eliminated

    Tough situation to be in for sure. There was an article on NPR a couple weeks ago that patent attorneys are in high demand. I hope that proves true and you have a short wait!

    Cherry stain or dye on hard maple

    I would highly recommend using dye. I used transtint when I was making some built in units that had both maple hardwood and maple plywood. The dye shows the grain, but avoids the blotching. Looks terrible when the dye is applied, but after about 3 coats of poly everything popped.
