These are nice, mind sharing how you did them? Looks like compound cut on a 45 degree table? How did you hollow the center?

Those are trippy cool! I can see these as tea light holders as well. Have you used any in that way, Bill? Thanks for sharing.

And Happy LJ Anniversary!

Very Nice. I wonder How something like this would look Offset turned on a lathe. I may have to give it a shot this weekend. Hope you don’t mind me borrowing your idea.

-- 25 years, 3 working lathes and I'm still figuring it out.

I was afraid of that. I have no way of turning a bit that large (holy cow). I suppose I could add, “yet.”
