I decided to turn another twisted torus just to display it in a different way and to make it looks like floating in the air. 144 pieces of Tasmanian oak and 144 p. of Jarah for the 300 mm in diameter torus only. the ring that carries the torus is made of 24 segments and 12 pieces in the base, 324 p in total. Photos # 5 & 6 are for the chucks I had made previously to use for all 6 doughnuts I turned so far. A lot of work was involved as I had to to mount it on the lathe four times to work on each quarter of it. But, as always, I enjoyed every minute of that task.

Always something glorious from the hand of Sam. Thanks for the selfie. I thought it was much smaller til I saw that. Tell me, why do you ise the word “torus”?

Well, Mark Wilson, Torus is the geometric name for this shape or form. I like ” doughnut ” as well but it is for edible sweet.
