The original design for that piece is from Aquio Nishida. Its on p57 of his book and he once said in his blog that although he had never actually built it....had he tried it would have been his most complicated piece. http://aquio1946.exblog.jp/9545971/Kudos to Al Zold for actually bringing the design to life
