I don't know what this is supposed to be, but I saw it and wondered what one would end up with if they glued up a woodturning blank like this and left the top mostly untouched, so as to show off the sharp angles and lines, but turned the lower two-thirds to make a turned vessel.
Woodturning by Wayne Hall I have had a similar idea. I think I would like to try filling in the gaps with smaller circles or other geometric shapes. Also, I think I would like to stain or paint the underside of the outer discs so that the interior is more visible, i.e. provide a better contrast between outer surface and the interior.

I’ve discovered a quick and almost effortless alternative to hand-buffing a finish on my projects. Find or turn a dowel that matches the inside diameter of a lambswool paint roller cover, mount the dowel between centers on your lathe, and fire it up. Apply paste wax or buffing compound to the roller and give your project a high shine. —Tony Finlay, South Penrith, New South Wales, Australia
