Hello, I was recently given a very cool curved solid made from maple and walnut. I recall seeing its construction described on a woodworking blog in the last year or two, but without being able to recall the name for this shape, I am unable to find the blog. Any help identifying the name of this solid would be appreciated. Thanks.

I can’t tell without more pictures, unless every shot around at this elevation is the same (except for the obvious color changes). Is the base round or some sort of oval?

The piece is symmetric, and I think of the outline to be very similar to bringing two identical disks together whose faces are 90 degrees to each other. If you hold your two open hands in front of you, one with the fingers pointing up and the other with the fingers pointing away from you, and move your hands come to each other, that approximates the orientation of the two disks.

I can also supply a short video if that helps. I think I first read about this somewhere on the Lumberjocks wesbsite. Thanks.
