This is a ribbon turning I have completed. It is walnut, cherry and maple. To do one of these you must be a little crazy.

By turning I mean it was turned on a wood lathe.

I’m just guessing here. It looks like he started with a segmented turing that when completed was conical in shape. It looks like it was then cut on a bandsaw. I’m probably completely wrong.

This is not an original idea, it was taken from M.Tibbits book. It is basically 8 bottomless bowls all exactly alike, in top and bottom size and same thickness, this one being 3/16”. After fininshing on lathe they are cut in half with a bandsaw, one side flipped over then reglued.http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg166/TomD5895/Garden/ribbonturning046.jpghttp://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg166/TomD5895/Garden/ribbonturning051.jpghttp://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg166/TomD5895/Garden/ribbonturning053.jpgAnd the result you have already seen.

Tomd, This creation just Blows my mind, to many twists turns and angled slices in the varying contrast of wood between the lights and dark. Utterly amazing, as I look at it reminds me of a Coral Snake all twisted and turning its body.. very nice…...your brother in woodworking John

This is an interesting project. Very unusual but it certainly does get your attention. I am sure that you put a lot of work into it and it “turned” out great. (Sorry I had to find a way to work this in). :)
Thanks for the post.
