This is a turning I completed 3 months ago but just got around to photographing it. It is walnut, cherry and yellowheart.

Pretty cool! How many turnings did it take to piece that together? Looks like 4?

Very inventive, I’ll give you that!

Unbelievable. I would like to know how you did it. Not that I could duplicate it, but just out of curiosity.

Great work!!

Wow! I’d love to see a video of how this was made.

What’s next… a strand of DNA maybe?
