Another really interesting turning. Glad the worms didn’t get it all!

Great Job.
Can you tell us how you were able to keep the rings so uniform. I think if I tried that the rings would have to be considered a baroque pattern.

I like the design. Doesn’t seem the normal color of rosewood (?)

Thank you guys for your comments.
The uniform

rings were performed with a jig that i made. The jig is a drill bit that was grindded to 45 degrees and the rings were made with the sharp end of the jig.
