I don’t know what they are called, but I like them. Nice work on turning with the offsets to create the square design.
Can you show how you did this?
Thanks for showing.

Very nice job on them. I ,too, would like to see how you made them square like that!! They looked turned until you see the square, then they look like they were passed over a router or shaper bit!

Oh, I see now!!!!!!! You have 5 centers in the top meaning you turned them on center than moved off center to make the square pattern!! Very neat idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that the process???...................Jim

I am sorry that I do not know your language well, but I can tell that they are unimportant centers for the other techniques in question. When I have more free time going to do the photo strip…

I am glad for your good comments, thank you all …
