Wheel of delicacy

Michael Alguire is a native New Mexican, born in Albuquerque. He began his wood turning hobby in 2013 making pens and small wooden ornaments. His passion has grown and his art has flourished to intricate wood turned hollow forms, including bowls, vases and abstract art pieces like baske illusions and more intricate pieces called "Wheels of Delicacy." Michael demonstrated how to create his intricate signature piece “Wheel of Delicacy” with the step-by-step process of prepping and turning the blank, sanding, aligning the pieces for glue-up, then using a dental drill to carefully carve out butterflies and holes.
