I agree, it must be made on a CNC machine. It is a cool design. It could be used as a logo for some company!

not sure why people are convinced this is a CNC job. I have a feeling something like this, with a bit of tinkering couldn’t be done with a router and some slanted jigs…

makes me want to try it… i’ve got ideas in my head about how i would attempt it, not sure it would work though.. will play with the concept tonight in the garage..

Very nice and unusual and looks like a lot of work. I think there is one just like it inside my car engine made of stee and all covered with motor oil.

Gear! This is nice. DID you CNC it? there is no shame in that.
