This Lazy Larry is made predominately of Tasmanian Blackwood… with a ring of Silver Ash surrounding the tumbling blocks…
Not much more to tell… 20 inches in diameter…. cirlcle and ring cut on the Torque Workcenter... very quick and very accurate..

that is superb

the beastie makes short work of cutting circles and rings (so how much of your day is taken up with thinking out the possibilities of the TWC)

great work

I find this design so impressive. Great coice of woods. I really like the blocks ringed by the ash. The circle offsets the blocks nicely.

Nice Larry, great fit. I’m not sure you could create this nice of a circle fit with out the work center or a bunch of extra weirdo woodworking skills.
