Made from red oak and walnut
Finished in Dutch Oil

Other than the initial figuring of angles the hard part was the circle.

The largest hole saw or Forster bit I had was 2-1/8” but I needed the circle to be 3”. So…I drilled the hole at 2-1/8” and then turned the circle insert. As the walnut pieces are about 1/8” proud I turned the circle to fit the 2-1/8” hole but with a lip making it overhang by the necessary amount. Made for a better looking fit as well.

Great looking piece, Rob.
I really like the wood combo.

Are you permitted to be woodworking….
While you’re supposed to be saving the world??? ;^)

Looks fantastic, DY. Now, if it could just have the Army emblem on it …. grin.

Love the wood combination. The red oak makes the walnut really stand out.
