This piece is so nice and I love the look. It’s a nice eye catcher.

Extremely well done, boggles my mind how you got the perfect radiating pattern, hope you comment on that.

Thanks all. I drew radial lines with a pencil to follow in an organized random pattern while it was still on the lathe. After sanding, I carved with a flex shaft tool from Harbor Freight with a bit from Rotary Chisel.

That is beautiful! Somehow reminds me of the Eclipse.

That is very unique!
All those radial cuts make it exquisite and add a lot of interest!

That’d make a wicked clock. I might steal your design in the future, hope you wouldn’t mind :)
