« Part 4: DIY Wood worker wedding #4: The cake plate Chapter #3 Part 5 of DIY Wood worker wedding series Part 6: The cake plate - a tree made of wood and table settings »

So i bought a Pneumatic Sanding Drum set and i used my lathe to wear down the rough edges (pictured above). While this looks great I started to feel that the tree was looking too manufactured. It needs to look a bit more natural / organic. So last night I went to the shop and recut the sides on the bandsaw. I’ll post photos of me working with the Pneumatic Sanding Drum set and the re-sanded roots tomorrow.
