Breaking Out

The 15" diameter black donut is constructed from black dyed veneer - lots of veneer. For structural strength each ring is a stacked composite of three, brick-laid veneer rings and the spacers are also stacked veneers - 1000Ôs of pieces. With the orientation of the veneer, turning the donut proved to be quite challenging.

The 2 1/2" spheres were first constructed as half-spheres so they could be hollowed before being joined (about 5900 more segments).
