Thanks. Actually this was a test to see how they came out, so I used a piece of cabinet grade 3/4” ply from the borg. They are suprisingly easy to make. I have been doing them in poplar and red oak and I am going to try a couple of other woods.

Very neat – do you cut them from a single board, making repetitive circular cuts, then stack them? Please explain how the are cut.

Bill, I glued the pattern to a piece of wood. Then you drill small entry holes (staggered through the pattern) and cut it out, starting on the inside. I gave a light sanding to knock the fuzz off. You have to rotate each row a bit and then glue. Finish how you like.

You’re partial to the scroll saw. Got any willow that you can use?

I’m sure if there’s a willow there’s a way-o.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

oh that’s a good one … where there’s a willow.. hahaha
I guess I’ll have to give it a try. Of course, the willow is pretty fragile, not sure how it will take to scroll saw cuts..
