This is my take on Mrballeng's crescent pendant
(which I'm sure y'all have seen already). It's a bit less shiny, but hey, what're ya gonna do.
The other day I saw his 'ible again and realized that I could make something similar to it using an old woodturner's trick. Actually, I think the reason I tried it was because of his comment that the methods he used were somewhat dangerous and he didn't want people getting hurt. So, naturally, I saw it as a challenge to make one without killing myself.
WARNING and all that: Use appropriate caution and attention to safety when working with power tools. Always know what your tools (and you) are capable of and don't make things do what they're not designed to. If you're unsure of your materials' structural integrity, please, at the minimum, wear a face shield. And it goes without saying (and yet here I am, saying it), ALWAYS wear safety glasses.
