Wheel Of Delicacy #3 Butterfly Effect

Wheel Of Delicacy #3 Butterfly Effect My latest in my wheel series has taken a new turn , while there is no color added ,it is a lot wider than my last two, and is a lot more challenging with the glue up as well as the piercing , I chose no wood burning or color on this piece ,cause i wanted to see how well it speaks with out it. I think i like this wide style a little more . and have many more directions i can take this . wood is box elder and its 10 " in diameter and 5.25" wide the inside is diameter is 6.125"

      Now, this is what I really like, Michael, because I'm partial to "natural" creations. Just superb!

      Beautiful Michael, just beautiful. I like the natural look also. Do you use a scroll saw for this work? Again, very nice indeed.
    • michael alguire
      thank you guys , this was turned on a lathe and then pierced with a turbine , no scroll saw

      Michael, I also do thin wall piercing very much like you have done in this exquisite piece but I would like to know how many pieces you made and assembled. I can only see one possible joint in the photo. It looks like the back side is solid (no center hole), is that true? I am very impressed with your tool control and maintaining line widths.
      Great job,

      @Glynn Cox thanks glen there is only one joint and the center hole goes all the way through, this is a new venture for me doing the piercing still allot to learn but I'm enjoying it. I'll oust another picture of a font view.
