While all of these spark my curiosity as a jot them down into my “future projects” list, nothing captures my attention more than Segment Turning. Often times, the segment turner will spend several hours or even days cutting, sanding, and gluing the wood before they ever think about the lathe.
While segment turning predates the industrial revolution, many segment turners credit Ray Allen with shining a spotlight on Segment Turning. A few years ago, Malcolm Tibbetts produced the following video which explains the process of Segment Turning.

Woodworkers employ any of a considerable number of power and hand tools to create tables, chairs, bookcases, boxes, etc. Woodturning, on the other hand, is limited to one power tool, the lathe and a selection of hand tools.
To get a real feel for the possibilities of artistic woodturning we need to step out a little bit and go looking in the windows of higher end gift stores and art galleries.
Furthermore, lathes come in a broad range of sizes so that you can find one to fit even the smallest space. Woodturning is an excellent hobby, one that many woodturners find not only relaxing but also artistically fulfilling. Our newest cowboy design, the Praying Cowboy & Cross Cremation Urn was designed specifically for the Christian cowboy. The simple, pointed composition reflects the things of utmost importance to the religious cowboy. Made in the USA from premium hardwoods with inlays of various wood types in their natural colors, the urn is pictured here in Oak but can also be made in Walnut or Maple. This ceramic art bust of a bull cattle is handmade in the USA by a talented husband and wife team of ceramic artists.
Ideal for a cowboy cattle rancher, this cremation urn has a capacity of up to 185 cubic inches and comes ready to mount. The walnut wood of this cowboy cremation urn contrasts perfectly with the cherry wood used for the winding country lane. A horse (made from maple) trots along carrying a cowboy (made with walnut) towards the setting sun on their final journey home. The Cowboy Boots Urn is crafted and finished with incredible detail, using simulated leather which is hand-painted and airbrushed. With premium artistry and an above average capacity at 286 cubic inches, the Cowboy Boots Urn is ideal as a representative memorial for any rancher, cowboy, or cowgirl. The desert plains and mesas of Arizona, New Mexico, and surrounding areas are perfectly typified by the laser carved inlay art scene in our Desert Horse Wood Cowboy Cremation Urn. Made in an Oregon woodshop from premium hardwoods, the urn box above is pictured in walnut wood and can also be made in oak or maple depending on your preference. The Handmade Ceramic Texas Longhorn Cremation Urn is our second wall-mounted art deco piece with a cowboy ranch theme. The husband-and-wife sculpture art team which created this unique cowboy cremation urn strives to improve on the notion of the typical funeral urn form, by creating art which is unlike anything you’ve seen before.


The Cowboy Cremation Urn with Heartland Horse Inlay is shown here in walnut with an oak border, cherry sky, maple background, with rosewood, yellowheart, and walnut for the cowboy riding the horse. Maple wood turned by hand into the shape of a homespun cowboy hat. Exceptional craftsmanship is exhibited in the shapely detail of our Hand Turned Maple Cowboy Hat Cremation Urn, making it a brilliant choice to commemorate your loved one. The evergreen-laden mountain ranges of the Pacific Northwest are impeccably captured in the detailed laser engraving of this horse and cowboy memorial art scene.
The Horse Riding Home Cremation Urn is identical to #9, but with a Christian cross emblazoned in the sky in place of the moon. However, unlike a drawing which clearly depicts the finished product, a segment plan looks more like an accountant’s spreadsheet. Each piece will pass across the table saw at least 2 times as a precise angle cuts are made. Ray brought the art to the front stage by creating a variety of wooden vessels ranging in size from a dime to one which he could sit inside of. The lathe is in a stationary position and simply rotates the block, or length of wood into the tool held by the woodturner. We see the turned legs of a poster bed, turned spindles on the staircase, turned baseball bats at the ball park.
Here we might begin to see the turned candlesticks and goblets that will get us thinking that there just might be something to this woodturning business.
Experienced turners are noted for developing unique tools to help them achieve unexpected forms. If you didn’t know better, you would swear these pieces were some sort of painted porcelain. If you’ve been searching for that perfect hobby that is both useful and creatively fulfilling, why not consider woodturning? Below we’ve collected ten different cremation urns with themes and designs which can be meaningful as a representation of the life and passions of your beloved cowboy. The wood inlay art scene depicts a man, hat in hand, kneeling in prayer and looking up to the symbol of the Christian cross on Mount Calvary in the distance while his beloved horse stands by patiently.
The Cowboy & Horse Road Home Cremation Urn weaves the tree in the foreground into the front panel, giving the scene a sense of depth and artistry.
This resuls in a breathtaking yet earthy art piece with leather-like cowboy boots resting on a coiled lasso rope.
Surrounded by a wood embellishment made of oak laser carved to look like an old-fashioned picture frame, a cowboy and his faithful steed ride towards the sunset in an iconic image of the American southwest. Rustic yet pulsating with the daring spirit characteristic of the Lone Star State, this bust of a Texas Longhorn steer is the ideal memorial for the Texan cowboy rancher with an adventurous soul. These kiln-fired wall mounted Texas Longhorn urns are definite in subject while remaining discreet in function.
With an above-average capacity of 275 cubic inches, this cowboy hat will serve as a splendid final resting place for the strapping cattleman. The Mountain Horse Cremation Urn, pictured above in oak wood, exhibits the classic image of a horse and rider galloping off into the sunset to convey the sense of your loved one’s final journey home. The results, for those with the patience and attention to detail, can be quite exhilarating or absolutely frustrating.


Each sheet is an organized jumble of columns, rows with a stream of numbers representing angles and distance for every single piece. After his death a biography of his work was written which not only showed his work but demonstrated his techniques and provided plans for beginners to start with. So, what’s so creative about standing in one place with a sharp tool while the lathe does all the hard work of turning the wood?
We don’t think much about them because they are so ubiquitous and we figure, and rightly so, that most of them are turned by automated lathes. I have seen delicate urn shaped vases, hollow throughout and wondered how the turner could have possibly managed to get a tool through the thin neck to hollow the wider portion of the base. A word of warning, lathes can be quite expensive and, as your skills grow so will your investment in tools.
Hand crafted, hand painted, and finished with a lovely bronze glaze, this memorial piece comes ready to mount on the walls of your home. There are peppermills of all sizes, vases, western hats, and an infinite number of projects to be turned. Look at the sculpted lines of a Sam Maloof chair, or the graceful style of a Craftsman table and wood carving is art by definition. These can include chisels and mallets, handsaws, bandsaws, even chainsaws, routers, and rotary tools. If you’ve ever seen a wooden vase, or a wooden cowboy hat in the window of a gallery you might get an inkling of what makes woodturning so unique. Probably the closest we get to something more interesting and original is a turned salad bowl. A piece of walnut burl for example that is neither long enough, nor stable enough to use in a chair, can be chucked onto a lathe and turned into a beautiful bowl.
To my eye, it is all but impossible and yet, there it is thin enough to allow light to seep through illuminating the natural beauty of the wood. This is a lathe that can be used in a traditional standing position but the headstock can also pivot and lock in position for someone who cannot stand. The bowl pictured at the top of the page, used 8 segments per ring and 8 rings for a total of 64 plus the base.
Those splits or knots that made it inappropriate for a chair can become intriguing aspects of a decorative bowl that might just become a display piece in your home. This opens the world of woodcraft to persons who might otherwise be excluded because of disability. All of this is done to create a rough blank which must be mounted on the lathe and turned to perfection. Though if you talk to a true segment turner, they can always relay a story or ten about how they glued up the perfect piece only to watch it explode on the lathe.
