    Very cool, Chas. As with your earlier swirly piece, I'm very impressed with the way you've matched up the curved joints.

    Very nice Chas. Do you get dizzy when you are turning these swirly things. I think I would.

    Very neat and clever. You do realize some folks here might just 'steal' that idea.
