Here are a few pictures of one of the pieces I am experimenting with.

The slots are random causing the viewers eye to try to search for a pattern.

It’s black walnut (6 1/4×3/4) wings are about 3/32 thick, black dye and finished with rattle can lacquer.

i hope you like it!

I like it. Reminds me of a high performance brake rotor.

Very unusual. It is an eye catcher.

You did it. The first thing I tried to do was find a pattern without even thinking about what I was doing,
and my mind still insists that there is a pattern and I should be able to find it. Nice looking bowl, did you
add the rings for reinforcement, or are the part of the turning? Thank you for sharing and slightly warping
my mind.

Hi all. Thanks for the nice reviews!!

The rings on this type of turning are part of the original piece and are necessary to the structure of the piece.
