That is real nice, how did you work the angles. Great piece of segmented turning.

A nice bit of “thinking it out” before the lathe is turned on.
Well done Jon :)

How does it go? “The square on the hypotenuse of a right triangle something something something…”

Nice job, but I’d go cross eyed trying it.

This piece looks very nice. Great shape/form. Colour is also very nice. The bleaching really works for this one. Well executed idea. I hope this one stays together for you. I am concerned about the different grain / glue joints ; and the wood movement.

Well done.. and welcome to the LJ site.

I’m confused, won’t the milk pour out onto the table and leave your cereal all dry?

Just kidding, that is beautiful and I can’t imagine how it was created.

Reading all of these nice comments is really great. Thanks everyone for chiming in.

Bob, I just came up with a pattern and started cutting away.

Brian, I hear ya with the end grain joints, but with this particular piece all the grain is running the same way so
I have the edge-grain working for me. We’ll see how it does.

Paul, the cereal issue is easy, I just put the bowl over my mouth when I pour in the milk and cereal…;’)

Thanks again for the comments guys.
