I have been pretty lazy at posting projects lately, but I have managed to get some fun things made in the shop this winter.
Recently, I have been experimenting with cutting circles, and dished center trays with a router jig that I discovered in a Lonnie Bird book entitled “The Complete Illustrated Guide to Shaping Wood”.
I highly recommend the book to wood crafters of all skill levels, as I have learned many new techniques. You can view an excerpt from the book that contains the technique used in this project at:
Now that I have created the jig shown in the book, I have been having fun creating and dreaming up several new projects that have been a real hit to those that have seen the resulting output.
This oak display stand is created by nesting 2 dished out circular trays and placing a lazy-susan bearing between the 2 halves. The top is also dished to fit a circular marble piece that I have been kicking around the house for years.
Finished to match our kitchen cabinets, table and buffet it is a nice addition to the china hutch and has wonderful uses as the center piece server at the dining table.
Thanks for letting me share
