Super nice, Did you cut that shape then turn or turn and cut it?
Regardless, it is beautiful, thanks for sharing

Fun turning them wings eh !!!

Turned out quite nice too, but for my liking, I think the finish is just a bit too shiney…well for me at least.

Well done! I like the colors and the shape. By the way I’m a fan of the gloss (just to balance things out ;)
