Plain 6 Rosette

The Plain 6 rosette is a 6-sided polygon rosette. Some turners call this a "puffy" rosette because of the shape of the rosette, but at the target diameter on the object, it will yield a polygon with straight sides.

Target Diameter
for Rosette Design
2”

At this diameter on the object being cut, the cuts will produce a 6-sided polygon.

  • A smaller diameter on the object results in surfaces which are concave between the apexes.

  • A larger diameter on the object results in surfaces which are convex between the apexes.

  • An amplitude adjuster can be used to modify these effects.

  • The cuts in the top center show how shape has "collapsed" in on itself, generating a shape that is almost floral.

  • The cuts around the outside show how the shapes are reversing this, becoming convex.
