Very well done.
Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.
I like it a lot.
I like it, and I'd like to see one before you turn them someday. I can't quite get my head around it..
That's beautiful, Tom. Is that what you call "segmented" turning?

Nicely done, Tom. The dots and arches work well together.
Cynthia, this is indeed an example of one type of segmented turning -- stave construction is one of several methods of gluing up a turning blank.
