These are some tri wing turnings. That’s done pieces mounted on two points of a cube, as opposed to mounting the blank either in the spindle position (with the grain horizontal), or cross grain. There are some special challenges with this. The grain being on an angle can be tricky if you’re working with a figured word like Curly Maple.

Very nice pieces of art, I have to study your method more, and I know you will have more interesting turnings in the future, I don’t want to miss out on any.
