This of course is one of the many projects seen on this sight that you just have to try. I have to admit it is quite a challenge! The base is a solid block and the rod is just a piece of brass welding rod.

If I traced it correctly, it only has one side, but appears 3 dimensional – a type of moebius curve. Well done!

Well done! And yes, getting everything to work out and glued up is not easy. I really like the way that you have it mounted.

I participated in an artisans fair at our public library and brought my trefoil along with many other pieces. The most popular item was the trefoil. I wasn’t selling anything, but could have sold this thing many times over.

ChuckV I have one more just siting on a shelf and was thinking of mounting it on a stand, much like a banana stand with it just hanging there! LOL Thanks for the replies guys.
