« Part 1: Milling and glueing. Part 2 of Ti Tree Lazy Larry series no next part

Once the glue was dry… I left the blank in clamps for 24 hours… to make sure…it was off to the bandsaw and onto the circle cutting jig..

Just a matter of rotating the blank on the pivot point….

And a few minutes later it is in the round…

Pop it through the drum sander, sand the edges using the circle sanding jig on the disc sander

A little mineral oil to bring out the colour and you can see how fantastic the grain really is..

I’m simple.

Wow that grain does pop. Reminds me of some teak I have seen. Nice.

As Steve mentioned, it has very similar grain to some burmese teak I picked up a few months ago. What does the future hold for this wonderful piece of nature you created?
