Nice looking project, is it from the one piece of wood or several as you said above. What pieces are glued together.

Hey that is really cool. It reminds me of an aluminum billet water inlet I made for my SB Chevy. It was bored in one direction and had a water hose inlet turned on the other. It was something else when it got spinning.

That piece looks like it is one single piece of wood and not glued on pieces.
What does it look like on the bottom? Did you bore the holes through?
Did you have the bottom piece square while turning and then cut it at 45 degress at the end?

That is a really neat and challenging piece. Thanks for sharing. It builds interest in doing something out of the ordinary.

I had to laugh at challetwo————4 axis coffee tables!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
