Chris, that looks like it would be done in segments and then assembled, no?

Neat design  :)

and this one.

interesting one this, some 2 sided in the trillions, 3 sided in the shank, and 5 sided plug cutting for the head.

cut the trillions with the flip portion of the shank and separated out.

the 5 sided plug method was nice, i love the accuracy of my mill and the ease that mach gives me for controlling Z and X with offsets.

all the parts are keyed to lock into each other after casting, see last image for the keys in the shank to take the trillion settings etc

Sods law on things going wrong.. if it can it will.

heres a little photo pictorial on how NOT to do a plug 5 sided cut...

and yes.. that is PlayDough jammed in there to stabilize the piece after i realized there was not enough support...
