    Hi Tom.

    On your website, the first bowl image is that of an escher tessellation. However that is not included as a plan in your plans package. Are you able to provide information as to how that was constructed? and, or is there a reference to any written material. I'm actually interested in escher tessellations because i want to use them in making cutting boards.

    Board members, please feel free to address this question if you have information.

    Thanks to all. -Mario

    Mario, I was hoping this was not going to be the picture you were talking about. This was made by Tom with a new process that he has just perfected and I have been asked not to talk about it right now, as this is going to be part of his demonstration that he will be doing at the symposium in October in St. Louis. So, if you want to hear and see right from Tom how this is done, come on down to the symposium: Title: Symposium Overview - Segmented Woodturners

    Other than that I am going to remain silent until after the symposium.

    Bob, thanks for checking this out. I will skip St Louis. But my curiosity has been piqued; so I'll stay tuned for any further developments after the symposium.

    All the pieces are cut out with a CNC, and from there its a bowl from a board.
