hi Paul
thank you mate.
by the way i have named the vase KALEIDOSCOPE as the joints of the feature ring seem to flow in and out of each other as in a kaleidoscope when you turn it.

Plenty of work in this Dennis. How did you work out all the angles.
Not long now Dennis and all the waiting will be over

hi Derek
ye not long now. the angles are easy all you do is glue strips together and then you have a long length of multi strips then you cut it at 45 degree . then you flip every other one over and glue them back up. you then have a long length of chevrons. then you need to cut the strip at 15 degree and then flip every other one over and glue them in pears to give you the 12 segment ring cuts. and that is it. the angles are just random and you hope for the best.

Wonderful piece Derek. Sounds simple, but I reckon it's anything but! Do you plan any kind of pattern when you make these pieces, or is it just whatever happens to appear when you turn it?
