I had the drunken weave done, for it seems like for ever… last week I decided to finish it… added a ring border.. for the Hands On Expo in Brisbane on the week end….
I had a piece of one hundred year old Silky Oak… Lace Wood… Grevillea Robusta… ok
Drilled a hole in the centre and fitted it to the TWC and cut a ring.. leaving a 1/16 inch gap to be filled with a stripe of Purple Heart..cut with the Incra TSLS 32 ..unashamed plug… eventually these plugs will be profitable. lol

Now that is a very pretty thing!
I’m all for the shameless plug,especially when it’s for a quality outfit like Incra.
I have their 300mm bendy rule & am getting the protractor from Santa (would love a table saw draped with the Incra TSLS 32 but alas my 7ft by 13ft workshop won’t allow such extravagance!)
Nice one Larry…

a thingie! a thingie!!!!!!
amazing… do you sell the incra as well? I am looking for someone who can send it to NZ (don’t get excited – not now, when I get my next tablesaw – the robland can’t be fitted with incra)

man that has to be the fanciest pizza box stand i have seen

(I hope your not going to tell us it took 400 hours to do and is worth a the cost of a few incra draped saws)

Hooky you is a bad lad,,, the ring only took a few minutes to cut on the TWC… so I can’t really charge anything for the extras????

Larry that board is very cool. I would suggest that it is indeed a bread cutting board. As you cut, the crumbs fall through to the bottom. When you’re done you simply lift the board and sweep away the crumbs. Or…you can put a handle on it and use it for a tennis racket! I’m sure this flexible item will become a best seller. No matter, it’s so good to look at, you could just hang it on the wall as art.

I’ve never heard of a pizza box stand, but it looks very nice.
What is the diameter of this ?
Mini versions would make nice trivets.
Great job !!

Drunken weaves surely go well with beer and pizza. Probably took you so long as you spend all your time now signing autographs…

Very cool design.

Very nice work. I’d eat pizza every day just so I could use the stand. Great job.
