Minature #2
Jan 25th, 2013 at 7:30pm
 
My newest minature is 3 1/2 inches tall and has 1031 plus segments.  The two feature rings were ment to cross, not U-turn.  It was too difficult to make them cross.  When my wife first saw it she said What's this?  I said a hole. She just gave a polite smile and sat it back down.  No need for me to say it has 150 pieces in each ring or that it has two compound miters 18 degrees by 22.5 and they had to be mirror images of each other.  It does sit on the fireplace mantle, but the hole turned to the back.  C/C welcome. Also there are 5 rings of open segments at the top.

Looks like a whole lot of work to me.  Sorry it didn't work out right for you.  The good side sure looks very good. 
Cool

I think it is still pretty amazing even if it did not go exactly as planed. I don't think I could do it.

Steve, you must have a tremendous amount of patience!  Nice job, even with the hole.

I'm impressed by the planning and persistence it took.  The feeling I have is every project that doesn't come out quite right means I learned something for the next one.

Nicely done.  I've done some segmenting, the smallest were 3" diameter ornaments.  So I know the patience it takes to do work like that and appreciate it.

Use the hole as a design opportunity. Drill it out and add another segmented piece in it's place....

Thanks for the encouragement. I am already planning another.  I will keep my feet firmly planted on the ground, and reach for the stars!
