    I was thinking as I was working on this stuff today, it would be fun to see if any one could guess what this mess was gonna be, one hint, it's an artsy thing, not a functional thing. Winner will get a small box of goodies, depending on what the winner is into making, personally selected by your humble thread starter:hi:. Lets give it till Thursday 6 pm Rocky Mountain Time, if there are no correct guesses, then I'm off the hook:sarcastic:

    I suspect @Sprung is right. The wedge shaped ends of each piece implies a segmented ring. Combined with your Naval background, that suggests a nautical compass.

    Sheese... thought it would be harder than that, it took me longer to type the post than you guys to guess it, @Tony was first though. So Tony, what kind of chunks can you use that would fit in a padded envelope?
    here it is laid out, still quite a bit of refinement to do, gonna be a wall art thing with a central medallion, that I have yet to make...

    I can't believe I was right, normally @Sprung gets these things!!

    Barry, I can use anything 1"square x 3" and up. I make fan pulls, pens, stoppers, bowls, etc. I do some Flatwork too......
