    The open twists are done by hand with a carbide grit round file, then perfected with finer grit paper wrapped around a drill bit of the correct size.

    The Pink Ivory Inlay in the Holly portion of the top is a fairly complicated procedure. It requires several generations of altered glue-ups and cutting and sanding before it can be put on the lathe.

    When I find some spare time I will put together some sort of document on the procedure.

    Fellas, we have a segmented turner in our midst!

    You do very nice work, Jerry. You've obviously been doing this for a while, huh? Gad to have you here, and looking forward to learning some from you.

    Wow Jerry, I can only imagine the work that went into those!

    Look forward to some documentation.

    Cheers!

    Platonic solid

    The second from the left is a spinning top sitting on its display stand.
    The third from the left is a Christmas tree Ornament made from Bloodwood
    and Holly.

    This new ornament below is called a Platonic solid with 96 vertices turned into a perfect ball. It is made of Makore and Walnut with rhinestones at each
    vertices.
