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.
