I sometimes make wooden disc golf discs for fun, since I play myself, and post pictures of them on disc golf forums. I get lots of positive responses, and tons of requests to make them. I recently received a message from a guy who was very flexible both for price and time involved, and decided to try doing a commission for the first time. I gave him the choice of wide wood pieces I had in the shop (so I could avoid doing a glue-up), and he chose padauk. He also bought and shipped to me a new disc which he wanted me to copy. Here is an album of pictures/descriptions of the build so far:
The “flight plate” (thin center portion) of the disc is now very thin and flexes a bit… I’ll have to be careful when sanding. This will be a display disc only, so it’s more about presentation than function.
