Great design! Did a simular one from walnut. Mine was only half round for candle holder, but the base was simular design.

Working with those wings spinning is fun when you can’t see them. Great job.

Keep it up.

I saw something similar on The Woodturning work shop and the guy put a piece of blue tape on the edge to help see it. Nice work by the way
