Default A Pair Of Twins But Not Identical

I made them not identical because I wanted to go along with my always saying I have never made two identical .
After the glue up I now realise that I should have made them identical because there is only one way a certain blank should be turned to make them come out right .
Oh well , live and learn .

These four are all 10" diameter .

Very pretty. The color reminds me of caramel ice cream topping. I need to get going and try my hand at segmenting for pens and platters or bowls. Nice photos and thanks for sharing the turnings.

While I understand your comment, I still think each is beautiful.

The effort that went in is well represented in the patterns. I love seeing your work... Some day when I have time!

Thank you for sharing; very inspirational.
