Piece by piece a segmented torus is born…
If you’ve ever puzzled over the method of the method of constructing those complicated segmented glue-ups that can be then turned to reveal mosaic like patterns…then this video might quietly shed some light.
Piece by piece, section by section, and with more than a few rubber bands, Andy Phillip shows how to create segmented and turned torus* or doughnut shaped form from a myriad of wood species.
* “In geometry, a torus (plural tori) is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space about an axis that is coplanar with the circle. If the axis of revolution does not touch the circle, the surface has a ring shape and is called a torus of revolution.” – Wikipedia
