Were the rings broken and reglued to be intertwined or turned that way?

Very nicely done! I hope you will not be offended by this question, and it’s not bent to be, of an interrogatory nature. Did the goblet,stem and base always remain one piece through out the turning processes? The intertwined rings do raise a lot of questions for us nosey types! Congratulations on an excellent turning, your niece has an extremely talented Uncle. I’m sure she will enjoy it for many years to come.

One ring is broken and then the break is glued back together and sanded and refinished. It is one piece of wood and if it looks crooked it could be my picture taking, although it did start moving after I turned the stem so technically it may be crooked just a little bit. 8:)
