Intriguing, yes. What makes it better, is your photography. These would make an interesting blog!

I could stare at this for hours. New things shapes and patterns continually arise. Well done, Michelle.

Monte P. : I did a tutorial on Sawmill on how to turn a piece simpler & somewhat like this. I only have dial-up and that is not conductive to blogging. Sorry.

Hi Jim: less than 1/2 inch to start, and closing in on 1/4 inch when done. they are almost lighter than air!

Definitely interesting and intriguing, and with the total thickness of 1/4”, that makes each face of the design1/8” of an inch thick, and with all of the negative removal they would definitely be light, and also fairly fragile.Almost more like lacework than woodwork. Thank you once again for sharing your work with us.

Another beauty! I like the small holes detail. The whole technique is quite mysterious.
