Cool idea Lee, and nicely executed. You mentioned rings...did you glue up individual rings or was it solid in the center when you started? (Gluing up half-circles instead of half-rings?)
Neat effect, two rings or not. Looks good from here.
another cool piece lee.

I went with this shape because it was the easiest to lay out and cut. (I was making this process up as I went along.) Doesn't take much wood: I started with 6"x12"x1/8" stock, only used about 1-1/2 pieces each of maple and walnut for the main "body".
Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?
Ring a ding ding!
Lee, that is just so cool!
We could use that one pick as a view of the slippery slope that awaits all who get into turning

Ya know, with that laser-guided scrollsaw of yours you could make other shapes in a similar pattern...hexagons, triangles, etc. Of course then you'd have to blend the sides with a sander instead of a lathe, but you could get some interesting pieces. (I'm sure you're not lacking for ideas to do with the laser, though.)
